TVGuide reports that FOX has given the green light for a navy-themed drama pilot from 'Justified' creator Graham Yost.
The drama is described as a mixture of ER, The West Wing and Top Gun and follows a group of "working men and women on board a U.S. Aircraft Carrier. Equipped with a 500-foot landing strip, a nuclear reactor and 6,000 crew members, the drama is an upstairs/downstairs look at pressure-cooker lives of the U.S. Navy."
The project will be penned and executive produced by Taylor Elmore along with Yost, Mark Johnson and Michael Dinner.
Also on the horizon for FOX is "Gang Related". Set in San Francisco, the project will center on "a gang member who infiltrates the SFPD and rises through the ranks. He must balance his obligations to his crime family with an increasing sense of loyalty to his new "family," the SFPD's Gang Task Force.
Chris Morgan is set to write the script for the pilot as well as executive-produce along with Scott Rosenbaum.
