'The Blacklist''s Joe Carnahan set for CBS' take on Anne Rice's 'Angel Time'
"Touched by an Angel" with a dark twist? Not exactly. The Anne Rice novel "Angel Time" has been snapped up by CBS as the basis for a new series with Joe Carnahan ("The A-Team," "The Blacklist" and Sarah Timberman ("Masters of Sex") signed on as executive producers. Carnahan will direct the pilot if it's ordered, while Liz Garcia and Joshua Harto ("Memphis Beat") wrote the script. Given the talent and the book involved, this isn't likely to be family-friendly viewing, even though Rice wrote the book during her ten-year return to the Catholic belief system of her youth (she renounced her faith again in 2010).
