NBC placed bank heist drama serial order The end of the game, with Morena Baccarin and Ryan Michelle Bathe.
The drama comes from Nick Wootton, Jake Coburn and Julie Plec. Universal TV is the studio.
Written by Mandrel and Scorpio executive producer Wootton and Quantico EP Coburn, the old untitled project is a high-stakes thriller about Elena Federova, a recently captured international arms dealer and brilliant criminal mastermind who, even in captivity, orchestrates a number of coordinated bank heists, and Val Turner, the FBI agent reasoned, relentless and socially excluded who will stop at nothing to thwart his ambitious plan.
Country alum Baccarin plays Federova, while First Wives Club Bathe plays Turner. The cast also includes Kamal Angelo Bolden, Costa Ronin, Noah Bean, Jordan Johnson-Hinds and Mark D. Espinoza.
