Post-apocalyptic drama gets nod from NBC

LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - NBC has ordered a pilot for “Day One,” a futuristic drama from “Heroes” writer-producer Jesse Alexander.

The project chronicles a small band of survivors of a devastating global event that who strive to rebuild society and unravel the mystery of why the event took place.

Futuristic dramas are in fashion this pilot season. In ABC’s “Flash Forward,” people have visions of the future. And ABC’s “V” tackles a future in which Earth is ruled by aliens.

Alexander’s series credits also include “Lost” and “Alias.”
