NBC’s first pilot order for the 2015-16 season has gone to the spiritually themed drama “Warrior.”
Project hails from Universal TV and writer David DiGilio. Walter Parkes and Laurie MacDonald are exec producing.
“Warrior” is described as centering on a damaged heroine who works undercover, with physical and spiritual guidance from a mysterious martial arts master, to bring down an international crime lord.
NBC execs are said to be huddling in the next few days to finalize more drama pilot orders. About a half-dozen titles are on the hot list, including conspiracy thriller “Endgame” from scribe John Rogers and “The Blacklist” producers John Davis and John Fox.
