Bruckheimer pilots land feature helmers

Davis, West join prod's latest TV ventures

Feature helmers Andrew Davis (“The Fugitive”) and Simon West (“Lara Croft: Tomb Raider”) are climbing aboard a pair of Jerry Bruckheimer-produced drama pilots.

West is set to direct “American Crime” at CBS, while Davis has inked to helm the untitled Jonathan Shapiro-penned hour for the WB. Bruckheimer’s Warner Bros. TV-based pod, headed by Jonathan Littman, is producing both projects.

Oscar-nommed helmer Taylor Hackford (“Ray”) was recently signed to direct Bruckheimer’s NBC pilot “E-Ring.”

“Crime,” from scribe-exec producer Jim Leonard, revolves around a suburban criminal prosecutor trying to balance work and motherhood. Shapiro project is centered around a 17-year-old law prodigy.

Davis-helmed pics include “Holes,” “Collateral Damage” and “Under Siege.” In addition to the critically loved but short-lived Fox skein “Keen Eddie,” West’s feature credits include “Con Air” and “The General’s Daughter.”
