Fox orders The Asset female spy thriller from Josh Friedman.
20th Century Fox TV has placed a pilot order for what is being described as a sophistacated espionage story, following a female spy.
Variety reports that this project had a sizable commitment from Fox after being set up last summer.
Friedman's experienced in film and TV scripting, with credits including Keanu Reeves and Morgan Freeman starrer Chain Reaction, Steven Spielberg's War of the Worlds starring Tom Cruise and Dakota Fanning and The Black Dahlia with Josh Hartnett. TV-wise, he's worked on Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, the telepic Locke & Key and The Finder from creator Hart Hanson.
