Janollari, Wright to develop religion-themed drama
Showtime is developing “Revelation,” a religion-themed drama from David Janollari and “Dirty Sexy Money” creator Craig Wright.
Hourlong project revolves around an unconventional minister who moves to a Texas church with his two teens after his wife suddenly dies.
Wright was once a minister himself and plans to rely on his base of knowledge to tackle issues of religion, faith and spirituality.
CBS TV Studios is behind the drama.
Project reps a reunion for Janollari and Showtime Entertainment prexy Bob Greenblatt, who ran the Greenblatt/Janollari Studio in the late 1990s and early 2000s before returning to the exec ranks.
Among Greenblatt/Janollari’s series was “Six Feet Under,” where Wright served as a scribe.
Wright’s other credits include “Brothers and Sisters” and “Lost.”
