Stephen J. Cannell, who has kept a low profile in TV over the past year, is understood to be developing a new drama series with Tribune Entertainment. “Jordan Chance” is described as a adventure series about a crusader who helps people solve unusual problems.
The project is still in the early stages of development, and it’s unclear if Cannell and Tribune have inked a formal deal for the show. Cannell’s most recent TV series, the syndie drama “Two,” was yanked earlier this year after one season. His last network primetime entry was the critically acclaimed but low-rated “Profit,” which had a short run on Fox in April and May 1996.
Lately, Cannell has been a hot property in the publishing world, penning the best-selling novels “The Plan” (1995), “Final Victim” (1996) and this year’s “King Con.”
