Jerry Bruckheimer is expanding his presence at ABC with a new crime procedural.

On the heels of the premiere of the Bruckheimer-produced ABC freshman drama The Forgotten, the network has handed a pilot commitment to Hopscotch, a high-concept police procedural from writer Chris Levinson.

Details about the project, from Bruckheimer TV and Warner Bros. TV, are sketchy, but it is said to tell the stories of homicide investigations over several nonconsecutive days, with each act of an episode chronicling a different day.

Crime-series writing is in Levinson's blood: Her father, writer-producer Richard Levinson, and his partner, William Link, helped establish the mystery genre on TV by creating such classics as Columbo and Murder, She Wrote.
