NBC has picked up the pilot for “Endgame,” a Las Vegas-set conspiracy thriller from Sony Pictures TV and Davis Entertainment.

The hourlong drama, which will be written by John Rogers (“The Librarians,” “Leverage”) and exec produced by John Davis and John Fox of NBC’s megahit “The Blacklist,” follows a former sniper turned security expert who is pulled into a mysterious conspiracy, after being wrongly accused of brutally murdering his wife. Playing against the rich and powerful in Vegas, he’s forced into a game of heroic challenges to save innocent lives.

The pickup marks NBC’s fifth drama pilot for the 2015-16 season. The net previously ordered “Game of Silence,” “Warrior,” “Love Is A Four Letter Word” and “Curse of Fuentes Woman” from “Ugly Betty” exec producer Silvio Horta. Six comedy pilots have also been ordered.
