Writer/director duo Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor are developing a one-hour project for NBC titled Zeroes, from Universal Media Studios and BermanBraun.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the show is described as a high-intensity drama chronicling the last hour of a crisis situation.
BermanBraun approached Neveldine and Taylor with the idea to do "a crisis show that doesn't bore you with all of the buildup leading to the crisis," Taylor said.
"We want to drop right into it and sustain the absolute most berserk state of crisis, when all of the options have been exhausted," he said. "We want to take that last 60 minutes and sustain it for the entire show."
Zeroes refers to a fictional team of guys called in as a last resort who are "absolutely ruthless" in their use of force, Taylor said.
Neveldine and Taylor are writing the script. The two also are on board to direct the potential pilot.
