A one-hour drama starring Harry Potter costar Rupert Grint has arrived at NBC with a put pilot order, EW has confirmed.

From Ugly Betty creator Silvio Horta and The Mysteries of Laura executive producer Aaron Kaplan, the untitled project follows Grint as a low-level employee from New York who is obsessed with Imperial City, a comic book series created by his father prior to his death. He believes he has every issue ever created, but is thrown for a loop when he uncovers an additional issue in the possession of a mysterious comic book collector. And soon, Grint’s character discovers the world of Imperial City is very real — and only he can save it.

If the pilot isn’t picked up to series, NBC faces a penalty. Executive produced by Kaplan and Horta, Horta will pen the script, as well. Grint is attached to produce.
