Dean Devlin is set to direct and produce the pilot Leverage for TNT. According to Variety, the series will revolve around a group of high-tech thieves who steal from wealthy criminal organizations.

Lead writer on the new series John Rogers, along with Devlin, stated that the show would be an action-adventure hour reminiscent of Devlin's two highly-rated telefilms The Librarian: Quest for the Spear and Return to King Solomon's Mines.

Leverage is one of four hour-long pilots that will be looked at towards the end of the year. TNT will pick up one of the new pilots and put it into production starting in March.
