University Professor Adrian Raine, as many professors do, wrote some books. Unlike most (all?) of the rest, however, Raine’s book The Anatomy of Violence: The Biological Roots of Crime was picked up by Homeland producers Howard Gordon and Alex Gansa and inspired a new TV show called Anatomy of Violence, as reported by TV Guide. That’s a big deal! Even more impressive, it was bought by CBS. So far they’ve agreed to a pilot production, but let’s be serious: these producers don’t mess around.
This drama follows a female FBI agent who begins to work with a mysterious psychiatrist with whom she previously “shared a connection,” whatever that means. Professor Raine works in the Departments of Criminology, Psychiatry, and Psychology at Penn. He’s also a superhero. Way to go, Prof!
