Titans and Underground - Ordered to series at WGN

The Chicago-based network has given a straight-to-series order to hourlong drama Titans, from Rescue Me's Peter Tolan and Paul Giamatti, and is eyeing a series greenlight for Underground, a pre-Civil War slave drama project from A Beautiful Mind's Akiva Goldsman, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

Both projects hail from Sony Pictures Television and Tribune Studios, and are expected to launch in 2015 though Underground — which has begun pre-production and has opened its writers' room — has yet to receive an official order.

Titans, with a 13-episode pickup, centers on the Farrell clan, a family of outsiders who have been in the hills of Appalachia since before anyone can remember. Living off the grid and above the law on their mountaintop homestead, they'll protect their world and defend their way of life using any means necessary. Playwright Peter Mattei is the creator and executive producer, alongside Tolan, Giamatti, Dan Carey and Michael Wimer.

Underground, from creator Misha Green (Sons of Anarchy) and Joe Pokaski (Heroes), follows the slaves who set foot on the fabled Underground Railroad, the secret network of men and women who risked their lives aiding them and the mercenaries tasked with hunting them down at any cost. Executive producers include Green, Pokaski, Goldsman, Tory Tunnell and Joby Harold.
