The former showrunners of Star Trek: Enterprise are both cutting new deals with Fox. Manny Coto has sold Fox a new genre series promising to be ’24 meets the X-Files, and Brannon Braga has closed a new overall deal with the network. Details below.
Coto sells Fox New Genre Series
Former Star Trek: Enterprise executive producer and showrunner Manny Coto (who most recently served as EP and showrunner for 24: Live Another Day) has sold Fox a new supernatural series. Deadline has this description:
[The] untitled project centers on an Iraq war vet who experiences a supernatural attack that leaves his wife in an unexplained coma. He embarks on a desperate quest to unravel the truth behind hauntings. Though a determined and acerbic loner, circumstances force him to work with a media-hungry, but not very successful team of ghost hunters. The team is led by a former university professor fired because of her research into mysterious phenomena, who is now determined to restore her reputation and academic career. Together, they chronicle dangerous, violent and truly terrifying occurrences.
Coto is writing and executive producing the show with his 24 colleague Evan Katz.
Braga Signs Development Deal With Fox
Also cutting deals with Fox is Coto’s former Enterprise (and 24) colleague Brannon Braga. Deadline is also reporting that the veteran Trek writer/producer "has closed a new overall deal with 20th Century Fox TV that is focused on development." Braga has had a lot of success in 2014 with the award-winning Cosmos and the popular WGN witches show Salem, which were both produced by Fox. Accoding to the report "This deal keeps him on that important show as well as allows him to develop other hits for both cable and broadcast."
