Fox has roped in a Western drama from Chuck executive producer Scott Rosenbaum.
The untitled project, from Warner Bros. TV and McG's studio-based Wonderland Sound and Vision, has landed a script commitment. Described as an epic Western with a sci-fi twist, the show will revolve around a gunslinger caught between worlds and will feature a nod to Planet of the Apes, said Rosenbaum, who is executive producing with Wonderland's McG and Peter Johnson, who also is an executive producer on Chuck.
What I'm really interested in is the revamping of the Western genre where you still have all of the iconic Western themes and iconic Western tropes, but the idea is that it will feel incredibly contemporary and will introduce the Western to a whole new generation, Rosenbaum said.
Wonderland has strong ties with Fox, where the company landed its first series, Fastlane and The O.C.
Wonderland is behind the network's new drama Human Target, which joins the company's returning series Chuck and Supernatural.
