TNT development slate: The Last Ship, Legends

by on May.16, 2012, under Television

The broadcast networks may not be giving us much love in new genre series pickups, but TNT did at least offer a couple on it’s development slate, which it announced today. Here are the descriptions given…Legends sounds a bit Dollhouse-ish in style:

The Lost Ship: In this exciting action/adventure project based on the popular novel by William Brinkley, the crew of a naval destroyer is forced to confront the reality of a new existence when a pandemic decimates most of the earth’s population. Michael Bay (Transformers) intends to direct the pilot if it is green lit. Executive Producers: Michael Bay, Brad Fuller, Andrew Form, Hank Steinberg (showrunner and writer) and Steve Kane (writer). Production Company: Platinum Dunes.

Legends: This suspenseful, action-packed drama is being developed by Howard Gordon, Jeffrey Nachmanoff and Mark Bomback from the novel Legends by Robert Littell. The story follows a deep-cover operative named Martin Odum, who has an uncanny ability to transform himself into a different person for each job. But his own identity comes into question when a mysterious stranger suggests that Martin isn’t who he thinks he is. Executive Producers: Howard Gordon, Jeffrey Nachmanoff, Alexander Cary and Jonathan Levin. Studio: Fox 21.

    Wait, wait. The main character is a man named *Martin Odum* who can transform himself into a different person for each job? Am I the only one who sees the complete rip-off of “Marten Broadcloak/Walter O’dim” (and many other names) from Stephen King’s “The Dark Tower” in this?
