24’s Howard Gordon to be showrunner of NBC’s “REM”

Howard Gordon at 24's 150th episode party

Looks like Howard Gordon’s own “Legends” pilot for NBC didn’t get picked up, but he was made showrunner of another upcoming NBC show called REM (a situation very similar to how he got the job on 24).

24 showrunner Howard Gordon will serve as executive producer/showrunner on REM, Kyle Killen’s drama pilot for NBC described as an Inception-style thriller about a cop living in two different realities. The gig falls under Gordon’s overall deal with 20th TV. In addition to REM, Gordon has the pilot Homeland, which he co-wrote, in contention at Showtime. If the two projects go to series, Gordon could conceivably run both the way Shawn Ryan juggled showrunner duties on The Shield and Lie to Me.

Now that seems like a very good show. Not as good as Homeland (I hope Showtime will pick it up, it seems awesome) but certainly worth watching.
