NBC commits to TV series Red Stick from best-selling author Patricia Cornwell

NBC has agreed to a script commitment for bestselling author Patricia Cornwell’s crime drama Red Stick from producer Matt Tolmach (Venom), according to Deadline.

Conceived by Cornwell, the series “follows Dr. Annie Dodge who is summoned from New York to her hometown of Baton Rouge, LA, after the sudden death of her father, the city’s beloved coroner. Now, as she’s mourning the loss of her childhood hero, Annie finds herself reluctantly stepping into her father’s role to solve an ongoing murder while navigating the complicated waters of Bayou politics, Southern hospitality and a simmering past romance.”

Details are scarce about the production, except to say Samantha Humphrey (S.W.A.T.) will executive produce the drama alongside Cornwell, while Tolmach and David Manpearl will share executive producing duties via Matt Tolmach Productions.

Per the report, Dr. Annie Dodge mirrors one of Cornwell’s famous characters, that of Dr. Kay Scarpetta, a medical examiner featured in 24 of the author’s novels, dubbed the “Scarpetta series.” Her works have sold more than 100 million copies worldwide.

Tolmach struck gold with the comic book film Venom, which will likely jump-start a new series thanks to a stellar box office haul that has already eclipsed $677 million worldwide.
