Deadline is reporting that NBC has given a put pilot commitment to a new drama which has been developed by Silvio Horta (Ugly Betty) and Aaron Japlan (Life In Pieces) and is set to star Rupert Grint (Harry Potter).
The site reports that Grint will play “Rupert, a low-level New York office drone obsessed with Imperial City, a comic book series his father created before his death. Rupert has spent his whole life believing he owned all nine issues. But when a mysterious comic book collector reveals the existence of a tenth issue, Rupert discovers that the world of Imperial City is real, and he is the one person who can save it.”
Grint previously appeared in the 2013 pilot Super Clyde, where he played an unassuming fast food worker who decided to become a super hero, although it failed to get a series order.
