NBC, Peter Berg experiment with ‘M.I.C.E.’

Universal Television, Film 44 developing drama based on Israeli series

Film 44, the production shingle of multihyphenate Peter Berg, has a new drama in development at NBC.

Titled “M.I.C.E.” — an acronym for Money, Ideology, Coercion and Ego — the project is based on an Israeli format from Keshet Broadcasting. Universal Television is producing.

Berg and his prodco have plenty of experience at the Peacock. He directed the pilot and was exec producer on critical fave “Friday Night Lights” and Film 44 was also behind hospital drama “Trauma” and last year’s U.K. import “Prime Suspect,” which starred Maria Bello.

Israeli formats have become a rage of late for U.S. networks. Showtime recently saw success with a Stateside version of “Homeland” and HBO aired psychotherapist drama “In Treatment” for three seasons. NBC’s reality skein “Who’s Still Standing?” came from Israel, as did Fox’s comedy “Traffic Light.”

Berg recently exec produced HBO docuseries “On Freddie Roach,” about the iconic boxing trainer.
