Roberto Orci may have found his identity at the CW…
The network has ordered a pilot of Identity, the drama project from the Mexican-American film and television writer and producer and his business partner Alex Kurtzman.
Identity is inspired by the Israeli feature script Dance of the Hours by Orna Raiz.
The drama project, written by Corinne Brinkerhoff, centers on a young woman in need of a transplant who learns that she’s related to a powerful family whose son is her only hope for a donor organ.
The CIA approaches her to investigate the family’s involvement in domestic terrorism and to infiltrate their rarefied world.
Her loyalty, morality and ethics are tested as she’s forced to slowly build a case against the family who saved her life.
CBS Television Studios is producing the project with studio-based K.O. Paper Products.
