'Breed' Gets Pilot

Breed was created by writer John Scott Shepherd and will be directed by True Blood and Fargo’s Scott Winant, reported Deadline. It will track a series of grisly murders that take place in the Pacific Northwest for which the culprit is unknown. It’s soon realized that a mysterious race of supernatural creatures are plaguing the region and offing its residents.

Coming to the rescue will be Detective Cooper Wells, an unstable but gifted local, who endeavors to restore peace. Cooper soon realizes that he can’t battle the beasts alone and hires on a female assassin to help him take down the barbaric creatures.

Nicky Weinstock is the producer for Breed, and he, Shepherd and Winant will share executive producer credits.

In addition to Breed, TNT has picked up fantasy drama Lumen, an untitled cocaine project from Jerry Bruckheimer and Michael Bay and Titans.
