Chris Brancato ("Law & Order: Criminal Intent") penned the Universal Television-based hour (the title of which "refers to a cop term for homicide detectives who, as a result of dealing with particularly brutal crimes, become a danger to themselves and are put under psychiatric observation"), which has a pilot production commitment.

Warner Bros. Television and Gerber Pictures are co-producing the hour with the latter's Bill Gerber ("Gran Torino") executive producing alongside Camp. (Deadline.com)
