Tradecraft: Archer Meets CHAOS?
Deadline reports that ABC has bought a pilot from Sheldon Turner and Jennifer Klein's production company Vendetta called Safehouse. (Not to be confused with the movie Safe House—with a space—coming out next year, starring Denzel Washington and Ryan Reynolds. That was written by David Guggenheim, who also penned a spy pilot that didn't make it to series this year, Exit Strategy.) This new TV Safehouse, written by Chris Hollier, is described by the trade blog as centering on "a young, brash CIA agent who joins a crew of agency professionals. The one catch? It’s headed by his long-estranged superspy mother." So... that sounds kind of... exactly... like CHAOS meets Archer, right? Maybe with a dab of Alias tossed in. Hopefully they've got more up their sleeve that they're not telling us yet. We shall see.
