Howard Gordon, Ben Queen Sell Drama

'Unthinkable' to hail from 20th Century Fox TV

“Unthinkable,” a drama from Ben Queen and Howard Gordon, has landed at Fox as a put pilot.

Project, based on a Boom! Studios comic book series by Mark Sable, centers on an FBI agent and screenwriter who team up to stop an attack against the United States. The plot of the attack, it turns out, is one that the screenwriter and others had concocted in a government-sponsored think tank years earlier.

20th Century Fox TV will produce the pilot.

Queen, who created “Drive” for Fox and penned feature film “Cars 2,” will write the pilot and exec produce. Gordon and Hugh Fitzpatrick will also exec produce through their Teakwood Lane banner. Boom! Studios brass Ross Richie and Peter A. Golden will also receive exec producer credits.

The Fox drama is just another on the plate of Gordon, who is exec producing the net’s reboot of the “24” TV series as a limited run for next year. Gordon also exec produces Showtime’s “Homeland.”

Queen is repped by UTA and attorney David Weber. Gordon is repped by WME and attorney Michael Gendler.

    I was so disappointed when “Drive” was cancelled and found “Cars 2” to be the wittiest children’s film I had seen in a long time. What appeals to one does not appeal to all, I suppose.

  2. Living the Geek Life says:

    “Drive” was forgettable and lasted just 4 episodes, and “Cars 2” was convoluted enough to have actually been a terrorist plot. Ben Queen’s track record doesn’t bode well for this project.
