NBC have handed a script commitment to an adaption of The Bone Collector book series.
The project hails from writers VJ Boyd and Mark Bianculli (S.W.A.T.). The Bone Collector follows Lincoln Rhyme, a retired genius forensic criminologist left paralyzed after an accident on the job. When a harrowing case brings him back to the force, Rhyme partners up with an ambitious young detective, Amelia Sachs, to take down some of the most dangerous criminals in the U.S.
The book series was previously adapted as a film which starred Denzel Washington and Angelina Jolie. The series will draw from the entire 11 book run of the novel series.
