Manifest - Missing Plane Mystery Thriller Receives Put Pilot at NBC

More than three years after the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 over the South China Sea, the bulk of the doomed aircraft still hasn’t been found, and the mystery of what happened to it remains. What if it suddenly reappeared?

Manifest, a high-concept mystery thriller, which has landed at NBC with a put pilot commitment, is exploring such a hypothetical scenario. The drama hails from The Mysteries of Laura creator Jeff Rake and producer Robert Zemeckis. Warner Bros. TV, where both Zemeckis and Rake have overall deals, is the studio.

In Manifest, written/executive produced by Rake, a plane disappears from radar and returns five years later after being untraceable and presumed lost at sea. No time has passed for those on the plane but, for their loved ones at home, a long five years have gone by. The series follows their personal lives as well as the larger mystery and purpose that is their destiny.
