24 exec producer Howard Gordon is teaming up with Jonathan Levin and writer Mark Bomback to develop the NBC drama Legends from 20th Century Fox TV.

According to Variety, the hour-long series centers on a CIA operative who has a knack for creating false identities ("legends" in agency speak). But while on those missions, he begins to wonder whether his own identity is fiction as well.

Legends is based on a book by Robert Littell.
