Peacock Gives Series Order to Drama 'Dan Brown's Langdon' Starring Ashley Zukerman

After originally being ordered to pilot by NBC last year, Peacock has today given a series order to the original drama series Dan Brown's Langdon based on the author's bestselling novel The Lost Symbol

The drama follows the early adventures of famed Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon, who must solve a series of deadly puzzles to save his kidnapped mentor and thwart a chilling global conspiracy.

The cast includes Ashley Zukerman, Valorie Curry, Sumalee Montano, Rick Gonzalez, Beau Knapp and Eddie Izzard.

The Crossing creators Dan Dworkin and Jay Beattie developed the drama. They will executive produce with Dan Brown, Brian Grazer, Ron Howard, Samie Kim Falvey and Anna Culp. CBS Studios, Universal Television and Imagine Television Studios will produce.

"The team was blown away by this pilot and its enormous potential to become a big, binge-worthy hit, and our new structure enables us to move it to Peacock and give it every opportunity to make that happen," said Susan Rovner, Chairman, NBCUniversal Television. "Our ability to pick up a great show is no longer limited by the confines of a network schedule, giving us the freedom to say 'yes' to shows we love and then find them the perfect home across our portfolio."

"I'm absolutely thrilled to be working with Ron and Brian again on another Langdon project," said Dan Brown. "We've all wanted to make The Lost Symbol for some time now, and I'm grateful to CBS Studios, Imagine Television Studios, Universal Television and Peacock for joining forces to make this project a reality. Dan Dworkin and Jay Beattie have written a phenomenally captivating script, and the casting and performances are pitch perfect."
