Deadline reports that NBC has started development on Ghost Projekt, based on the Oni Press graphic novel series written by Joe Harris and illustrated by Steve Rolston.
The show is written by John Glenn and feature writer/director Andre Øvredal (Troll Hunter). It follows an American UN weapons inspector and a Russian FSB agent who team up to chase a group of theives before they spread dangerous supernatural material stolen from an abandoned Soviet weapons lab.
Øvredal will direct the pilot and will be a co-executive producer with Glenn. Also executive producing is Eric Gitter for Universal TV and Oni Press' sister company Closed On Mondays, which has a first-look deal at the studio.
The companies tried to adapt Oni Press' The Sixth Gun last season, and it went to pilot. Closed On Mondays' Noah Greenshner will serve be a co-executive producer on the series with Oni Press's Joe Nozemack & James Lucas Jones serving as producers.
The series was originally set up for Syfy in 2011.
