Game Of Silence - Pilot Ordered by NBC



NBC continues to forge ahead with pilot orders, greenlighting drama Game Of Silence, from CSI maven Carol Mendelsohn, Parenthood executive producer David Hudgins and Sony TV. This marks the first pilot order by an U.S. network for a scripted Turkish format.

Game of Silence, based on the Turkish drama Suskunlar, was among the biggest sales of pitch season, landing a pilot production commitment that had series penalty attached to it. In anticipation of a pilot order, I hear NBC and Sony TV set up a writers room with a couple of writers joining Hudgins and Mendelsohn to work on breaking the show’s first 13 episodes while Hudgins was writing the pilot script.

Game of Silence is about a rising attorney on the brink of success could lose his perfectly crafted life when his long lost childhood friends threaten to expose a dark secret from their violent past. Hudgins is executive producing with Carol Mendelsonhn Prods’ Mendelsohn and Julie Weitz. Timur Savci, of TIMS Prods, which was behind the original series, also executive produces along with Intrigue’s Tariq Jalil.
