‘Kidnapped’ captures exec

Sony nabs Greenwalt for fall drama

“Angel” co-creator David Greenwalt has nabbed a deal for “Kidnapped,” inking with Sony Pictures Television to come aboard as showrunner and exec producer of the NBC fall drama.

Michael Dinner-helmed “Kidnapped,” which stars Jeremy Sisto and Dana Delany, snagged an unusually early greenlight from the Peacock last month. Net has ordered 13 episodes of the skein created by Jason Smilovic.

Greenwalt will work closely with Smilovic, who exec produced the “Kidnapped” pilot along with Dinner and Sarah Timberman and Carl Beverly of Sony-based 25 C Prods.

As part of his deal to join “Kidnapped,” Greenwalt has landed a premium blind script commitment from Sony for future development.

“Kidnapped” features Sisto as a kidnapping expert who works outside the legal system to retrieve those who’ve been snatched. Each season of the show will feature a different victim.

In addition to co-creating “Angel” with Joss Whedon, Greenwalt — repped by Kaplan-Stahler-Gumer-Braun — was an original writer-producer on Whedon’s “Buffy the Vampire Slayer.”

More recently, Greenwalt developed Showtime pilot “The Bastard” and was showrunner for the UPN drama “Jake 2.0” and ABC’s “Miracles.” He’s currently working as a consulting producer for Sci Fi Channel’s upcoming skein “Eureka.”
