NBC Greenlights Dick Wolf Pilot

Dick Wolf, Law & Order creator and producer, and godfather to New York City actors, is creating a new show for NBC.

His subject matter will be familiar territory, according to Variety. The one-hour show, called Lost and Found (what, no ampersand?), will revolve around “an unconventional female detective who identifies anonymous murder victims, and then solves their crimes.”

Mr. Wolf will executive produce the pilot for which he’s corralled writer Chris Levinson to provide a script. Ms. Levinson has worked with Mr. Wolf on Law & Order, Law & Order: SVU and Law & Order: Trial by Jury. She also wrote episodes of Dawson’s Creek and Charmed.

NBC will pick up the show based on what producers can pull for a cast. With the Dawson’s Creek scribe on the payroll, will Katie Holmes return from crazy Cruiseland to pout on the small screen once again?
