A new drama based on Caleb Carr novel The Alienist is in the works as well, alongside the previously announced TV adaptation of The Terminator.

The development slate is the company's first in TV since relaunching its startup division Paramount Television.

Joe Carnahan (The Grey) will write and direct the pilot for Narc, based on the 2002 film starring Ray Liotta and Jason Patric.
