“Our partners at ABC, 20th Television and A+E Studios have given me a great environment to step out of my comfort zone and deliver something special,” Kevin Costner said.
Helbing will act as showrunner in addition to co-writing the pilot’s script. Most recently he served as the showrunner on the drama “Knightfall.” His other credits include “The Flash,” and “Spartacus.”
National parks are known for their awe-inspiring landscapes, but the show will reveal a menacing side we often don’t see. In the show, fans can expect to see a vast amount of criminal activity in the park’s landscape.
