Debris, a pilot from Fringe producer, J.H. Wyman gets the greenlight from NBC. UFO enthusiasts, this could be your favorite new series.
Debris is a sci-fi series to keep an eye on. Deadline reports that the latest pilot from J.H. Wyman has been given the greenlight from NBC.
Fans of Fringe will be delighted to know that Wyman is back. From 2009 until 2013, he was the showrunner for the J.J. Abrams production about an FBI agent who partners with a brilliant, institutionalized scientist and his son. Together they solve weird crimes that may be part of a larger conspiracy.
Wyman’s canceled Fox show, Almost Human about a policeman and his android partner starring Karl Urban and Michael Ealy was an underrated gem. Unfortunately, it only lasted one season.
His next effort, Debris, centers around two agents from different countries who team up to investigate a downed alien craft whose wreckage is having a disturbing effect on mankind. UFOs are a hot topic and this is evidenced with the spectacular success of the History Channel’s Project Blue Book.
Not much is known about Wyman’s show at present since the announcement from NBC just occurred at the Television Critics Association Winter Press Tour. Wyman’s Frequency Films will be producing Debris with Legendary Television and Jason Hoffs.
Hoffs prior to teaming up with Wyman served as an executive producer on Steven Spielberg’s The Terminal. He also produced the Adam Wingard directed Death Note and the Tom Cruise starrer, Edge of Tomorrow.
With the behind the scenes personnel involved with Debris, it looks like NBC might have a future hit. We will keep you posted once more information becomes available.
