Comic Book Drama Starring Rupert Grint Receives Put Pilot Commitment at NBC



A drama project toplined by Harry Potter co-star Rupert Grint, from Ugly Betty creator Silvio Horta and Life In Pieces and Secrets & Lies producer Aaron Kaplan, has landed at NBC with a put pilot commitment.

Written by Horta based on an idea by Kaplan, the untitled drama was developed for Grint, a big comic book fan. The British actor would star as Rupert, a low-level New York office drone obsessed with Imperial City, a comic book series his father created before his death. Rupert has spent his whole life believing he owned all nine issues. But when a mysterious comic book collector reveals the existence of a tenth issue, Rupert discovers that the world of Imperial City is real, and he is the one person who can save it.

Warner Bros. TV, where Horta is under an overall deal, is the studio, producing with Horta’s Silent H Productions and Kaplan’s Kapital Entertainment. Horta and Kaplan will executive produce, with Grint serving as producer. Horta’s producing partner at Silent H, Andrew Maher, is expected to serve in some producing capacity.
