LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - NBC is back in business with producer Jerry Bruckheimer.

An untitled action procedural from Bruckheimer and writer Jennifer Johnson, which garnered interest from several networks, has received a pilot commitment from the Peacock.

The project, from Warner Bros. TV and Bruckheimer TV, tells the stories of a team charged with making sure fugitive criminals don't evade justice.

Johnson, an executive producer on CBS' "Cold Case," another WBTV/Bruckheimer procedural, is writing the script.

The project reunites Bruckheimer TV and NBC after the 2005 military drama "E-Ring."

The company has eight series on the air, including freshmen "Miami Trauma" on CBS and "The Forgotten" on ABC.

Johnson, whose series credits also include ABC's "Lost" and NBC's "Providence," joined "Case" four years ago as a supervising producer and last season rose to co-showrunner with Greg Plageman.
