NBC Orders Robert Langdon Pilot
Tom Hank’s character Robert Langdon, based on Dan Brown’s books, is transformed to the smaller screen on NBC but without Hanks.
Reports from Variety.com, confirms that a new series-pilot has been ordered. It’s based on Dan Brown’s The Lost Symbol. A book that followed a younger Robert Langdon on his earlier adventures as a Harvard symbologist. Dan Dworkin and Jay Beattie will write and act as executive producers for the pilot. Dan Brown will also executive produce alongside with Ron Howard, Brian Grazer, Anna Culp, and Samie Falvey of Imagine Television.
It would be a different actor cast for the project if this project would become ordered as a whole season. Hanks portrayed the symbologist, Langdon, in The Da Vinci Code, Angels & Demons and Inferno. All three adaptations were directed by Howard and produced by Imagine entertainment. This is the sixth pilot-pick up from NBC for the 2020-2021 season so far. NBC has also ordered another drama called Ordinary Joe.
