CBS is hoping to turn the Anne Rice novel Angel Time into a possible series.

The network has ordered a drama script from Liz Garcia and Joshua Harto (Memphis Beat) that’s based on Rice’s 2009 novel. The book, which was the first in the author’s Songs of the Seraphim series, tells the story of an assassin with a tragic past who finds himself on a road to redemption. The story takes place at the historic Mission Inn in Riverside, CA.

Rice will serve an executive producer on the project, as well as Sarah Timberman (Masters of Sex) and Carl Beverly.

Joe Carnahan (The A-Team) is also listed as an exec producer, and will direct the pilot (should CBS decide to order one).

A previous Rice novel that was adapted for TV was the 1979 tome The Feast of All Saints, which aired as a Showtime original miniseries in 2001.
