After setting up six projects at ABC, the ABC Studios-based Mark Gordon Co. is venturing out with a drama sale at CBS and a comedy one at NBC, both produced by ABC Studios. The CBS project, Darkness Falls, brings together the key auspices behind long-running procedural Criminal Minds — CBS, which airs it; the Mark Gordon Co., ABC Studios and CBS TV Studios, which produce it; and the series’ executive producer/showrunner Erica Messer. Messer will write and executive produce Darkness Falls with fellow Criminal Minds executive producer Janine Sherman Barrois. The project is described as a character procedural that will explore the complex dynamic of an FBI psychologist and a homicide specialist as they journey into small communities around the country to solve the darkest, most twisted single murders. Wme-repped Barrois will serve as showrunner, with UTA-repped Messer continuing her duties as the sole showrunner on Criminal Minds. Gordon »
