'The Bone Collector' TV Adaptation Based On Book Series And Film In Development At NBC

A television adaptation  of The Bone Collector is in development.

The best selling book series by Jeffery Deaver had a popular 1999 film adaptation starring Denzel Washington and Angelina Jolie.

The project is from Universal Television and Sony Pictures TV and writers VJ Boyd and Mark Bianculli. While the film was just based on the first book that came out in 1997, the series would be expected to take from the whole series. There are currently eleven books in the series, with the most recent release coming out in 2014.

NBC’s series version would follow  Lincoln Rhyme (portrayed by Washington in the film), a retired genius forensic criminologist left paralyzed after an accident on the job. When a harrowing case brings him back to the force, Rhyme partners up with an ambitious young detective, Amelia Sachs (portrayed by Jolie in the film), to take down some of the most dangerous criminals in the U.S.

This is said to be one of the last big buys for NBC this development season.
