The major networks are starting to home in on their 2012 pilot orders. NBC and ABC gave out a flurry of greenlights Friday evening, with more to come this week.

One of the interesting new pilot orders by NBC, the network that gave us hit dramas like Heroes, ER, The Event, and New Dramas like The Firm, Grimm, is:

Midnight Sun, based on the Israeli series Timrot Ashan, aka Pillars of Smoke, is a thriller concerning an FBI investigation of the mysterious disappearance of a group living on a commune in Alaska. The Alaska setting is appropriate given that the original series is being described as Twin Peaks meets Northern Exposure meets Lost. Midnight Sun centers on a female FBI cult specialist starts an investigation that uncovers a larger conspiracy.

        

Lisa Zwerling wrote the adaptation and is executive producing the pilot with Peter Traugott, his executive Rachel Kaplan and Alon Aranya.

Although the incomplete¬†Stephanie¬†Meyer novel has absolutely nothing to do with this, expect for having the same name, to the dismay of many, the plot does seem interesting in its own way…….. Doesn’t it?!
