Exclusive: In a competitive situation, Wgn America has landed American Dream, a suspense drama project executive produced by House creator David Shore and produced by Sony TV. Written/co-executive produced by feature scribe Wayne Beach (Murder At 1600), the project, now in development, chronicles the cat-and-mouse game that erupts when a Manhattan homicide cop suspects one of America’s top CEOs of being a killer.

"You gonna put the President in a lineup?"
The arrival of the first trailer for Olympus Has Fallen revealed the first of two upcoming movies that are essentially "Die Hard in the White House," but Wesley Snipes and Diane Lane were already on the case of trouble in the White House in 1997's Murder at 1600.

But with the murder happening inside the White House, everyone's a suspect — even the President. Alan Alda, Dennis Miller and Tate Donovan co-star.
