NBC Orders More Scripts for Drama Prospect ‘Conception’

NBC is putting more effort into the development of mystery drama prospect “Conception.”

Peacock has ordered three more scripts and has assembled a small writers room for the Universal TV project penned by John Glenn and Lars Jacobson. David Janollari is exec producing with Glenn and Jacobson.

“Conception” turns on a mystery involving modern-day cases of immaculate conception and how those children are destined to change the world. The pilot has not been shot.

NBC’s move to devote more development resources to the project is a good sign of the network’s interest in the concept, and an example of how the nets are breaking with pilot season conventions this year.
