DEVELOPMENT STAGE: script
DESCRIPTION: (from A&E's press release, May 2009) From Matthew Carnahan ("Trinity," "Dirt," "Fastlane") and Emmy winner Anthony LaPaglia ("Without a Trace," "Lantana") comes a unique twist on the procedural crime drama in which the tales of a group of up-and-coming criminals chasing their American dream are told in the first half of the show, while the second half tells the stories of the FBI Task Force charged with tracking them down. Instead of law and order, it's crime and punishment. The Untitled Matthew Carnahan Project is written by Carnahan, executive produced by LaPaglia and is being developed by Warner Horizon Television for A&E. Carnahan would also direct the pilot.
