NBC orders pilot based on The Bone Collector novels

Posted on

NBC has given a pilot order for a new series based on Jeffery Deaver’s best-selling The Bone Collector novels.

According to the network, the drama will follow “legendary forensic criminologist Lincoln Rhyme, who was seriously injured during his hunt for the diabolic serial killer known as the Bone Collector. Called back into action when the killer re-emerges, Lincoln forms a unique partnership with Amelia Sachs, a young beat cop who helps him hunt the deadly mastermind while also taking on the most high-profile cases in the NYPD.”

The new series will shed the rather gothic “Bone Collector” title and will be simply (but perhaps a tad confusingly) be called Lincoln. VJ Boyd (S.W.A.T.) and Mark Bianculli are showrunners on the pilot, which will be under consideration for a series order for next season.

The Bone Collector was previously adapted into a 1999 movie, photo above, starring Denzel Washington and Angelina Jolie.
