20th Television and A+E Studios have been developing a new pilot called “Criminal Nature”, which was formerly known as a National Parks project, and is described as a propulsive, soapy procedural set in the stunning world of America’s great outdoors.
The story revolves around the tangled, messy lives of the agents who work for the ISB — an elite law enforcement unit responsible for solving all serious crimes that occur in our country’s 81,000 square miles of protected land.
However, it’s been revealed by TVLine that ABC has decided not to go ahead with the project.
The pilot starred Michaela McManus, Ian Duff and Parker Young. The pilot was created by Rashad Raisani, who is also executive producing the show along with A+E Studios’ Barry Jossen and Tana Jamieson.
This was the second time that the “Criminal Nature” project has failed to make it to our screens, as a pilot for the show was made by Kevin Costner, but was passed on, leading to a redevelopment, which has also now failed.
