Fox is looking to uber-producer John Wells (ER, Shameless, The West Wing) to create a drama about a family of assassins.

The network has ordered Boomerang, a drama pilot written by Davey Holmes and exec produced by Wells and Andrew Stern that focuses on the usual, everyday drama surrounding a family business — except this family is in the business of executing hits as assassins for the U.S. government.
