The writer, director, and executive producer is heading to network TV with Acts of Crime. The show takes "a unique spin on the crime procedural." No further details about plot have been unveiled at this time.
Esmail's collaborator Chad Hamilton (Mr. Robot, Homecoming) will serve as co-executive producer on the project. The pilot comes from UCP, a division of Universal Studio Group, and ABC Signature.
If fans of Esmail's work have come to know anything over the years, it's that he knows how to unravel a mystery in unconventional ways. We can only imagine what he'll do with a procedural crime series.
