Comic book creator Kelly Sue DeConnick is set to write for NBC’s upcoming “Redliners” TV show, based on the series of short stories by Charlaine Harris which also inspired “True Blood” . “Emerald City” executive producer Shaun Cassidy will write alongside DeConnick.
Description of the show: In the tone of Mr. and Mrs. Smith, Redliners mixes humor, romance and espionage. It follows a pair of former spies living in suburbia who are reactivated when a failed hit on one of them leaves the assassin dead. Thrust back into the world of high-stakes espionage, the two find their secret lives bleeding into their suburban ones, as they begin to apply the life-and-death techniques of spycraft to the problems of an ordinary world.”
