TV series about real life heroes and heroines in development with Dancing Ledge

Dancing Ledge Productions is to produce Lee Child: True Crime, a series about men and women who have fought for justice in the face of great danger. The series will feature stories "that have the same mythic compulsion of Lee Child's novels and dramatise a whole new biosphere of crime".

Dancing Ledge and Child are discussing the project with potential showrunners. Child said: "We all read thrillers and watch movies where an average person goes to extraordinary lengths, to defend family or tribe, or to seek justice. It turns out that reality goes even further - we have some amazing stories to tell, some of them barely believable, but they're all true."
