Gordon teamed with Jonathan Levin and scribe Mark Bomback to develop “Legends,” a drama set up at NBC.
Hour-long centers on a CIA operative who has a knack for creating false identities (“legends” in agency speak). But while on those missions, he begins to wonder whether his own identity is fiction as well.
20th Century Fox TV is the studio. Bomback will write and exec produce, while Levin and Gordon are also EPs.
“Legends” is based on a book by Robert Littell.
There probably aren’t enough hours in a day for Gordon, who has been on a tear in recent weeks, with three projects now in various stages of development.
Showtime just picked up the pilot “Homeland,” from Gordon and Alex Gansa, who are adapting the Israeli TV series “Prisoners of War.”
And Gordon has also paired up with “Glee’s” Ryan Murphy to develop a new drama through 20th. That show has been set up at Fox.
Bomback hails from the feature world, where his credits include “Live Free or Die Hard” and “Race to Witch Mountain.” Levin’s credits include “The Ex-List.”
