NBC buys script from ‘Law & Order’ producer

Untitled drama from Judith McCreary

NBC has bought a drama script from “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” consulting producer Judith McCreary via Universal Television.

A character-driven show with procedural elements, the untitled drama is loosely based on the life of a survivor of a traumatic brain injury and his attempts to cope with the debilitating injury while solving crimes.

The lead character is a fictionalized version of Tony Ciaglia, who tells his story with author Pete Earley in “The Serial Killer Whisperer: How One Man’s Tragedy Helped Unlock the Deadliest Secrets of the World’s Most Terrifying Killers.” The book will be published in January by Touchstone, a division of Simon & Schuster.

A co-EP on “SVU” for the past eight years, McCreary has also worked on “CSI” and “Criminal Minds.”

McCreary is repped by ICM, lawyer Phil Klein and manager Darryl Taja.
