Michael Ovitz will be executive producer of a Tom Clancy procedural drama, 'Homeland Security', according to articles appearing today in both Variety and The Hollywood Reporter.
The project, developed with TNT, revolves around a team of domestic intelligence operatives who battle enemies at home and abroad. 'Homeland Security' would mark Ovitz's first onscreen credit as executive producer for a TV series, sharing duties with writer Javier Grillo-Marxuach (Lost), Clancy and Chris George.
While many of Tom Clancy's novels - 'The Hunt for Red October,' 'Patriot Games,' 'Sum of All Fears' and 'Clear and Present Danger' - have been adapted for the bigscreen, rarely has his work appeared on television.
