(Deadline.com)
SCROLL, THE (FOX, New!) - Michael Elliot (Brown Sugar) has sold a potential drama to the network which "will reimagine some of the Bible's most popular stories in present day through a group of friends and colleagues that are modern-day versions of some of the Bible's most notable characters." 20th Century Fox Television is behind the hour with Relevé Entertainment's Holly Carter and Flavor Unit Television's Queen Latifah and Shakim Compere likewise executive producing.
