Cuse's project is an adaptation of Harvey Award-nominated graphic novel The Sixth Gun, which was first published in 2010.

The drama tells the story of six guns of otherwordly power, and charts the chaos that occurs when an innocent girl comes into possession of the last, most powerful weapon.

Eisendrath's FBI drama The Blacklist has been in development at NBC for around five months.

Written by Jon Bokenkamp (Taking Lives), the protagonist is a criminal who is top of the world's 'most wanted' list, but suddenly turns himself in and offers to lead the authorities to everyone he's ever worked with.

However, he will only work with a rookie FBI agent who he apparently has no previous connections with.

Deadline additionally reports that Life creator Rand Ravich's untitled spy thriller for 20th Century Fox TV has now been picked up officially by NBC.

Other pilots in production at NBC include medical drama After Hours and Friday Night Lights creator Peter Berg's new project Bloodline.
