CBS is developing two new dramas from writer and executive producer Anna Fricke — one with Mark Gordon and another with Ridley Scott.

“Patriots,” follows an estranged brother and sister — an FBI agent and a professor with former ties to Islamic extremism — who unexpectedly reunite to counter violent terrorism in the city of Boston. Fricke will executive produce with Scott and David Zucker of Scott Free Productions. The project hails from CBS Television Studios, which Fricke signed a two-year overall deal with earlier this year.

“Murder Room,” produced by CBS TV Studios in association with the Mark Gordon Company and EOne, tells the story of a woman recruited by her mother into the Vidocq Society, an international think tank of the world’s best forensic experts dedicated to solving the unsolvable. Executive producers are Fricke, Gordon, Jim Young, and Tatiana Kelly

Fricke served as showrunner for five seasons on Syfy’s “Being Human,” which she developed for North American television with her husband, Jeremy Carver.

Fricke is represented by UTA.
