Fox orders pilot for UNTHINKABLE.

Fox has ordered a pilot for UNTHINKABLE, a proposed series that stems from the comic book series, of the same name, from Boom! Studios.

“They’ve been hired to think the UNTHINKABLE. But what happens when the unthinkable actually happens? After 9-11, best-selling author Alan Ripley joins a government think tank consisting of the most imaginative minds in diverse fields. Their job? Think of nightmare scenarios and crippling terrorist attacks so the government can safeguard against them. But what happens when the think tank folds, and the attacks start to happen?”

Howard Gordon (24, HOMELAND) and Ben Queen are the folks behind it. Gordon is best known for 24 and HOMELAND, but got his start on SPENSER FOR HIRE and worked on BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER  and THE X-FILES. Queen wrote and produced the short-lived Nathan Fillion series DRIVE.
