NBC orders a Remy Chandler procedural about an angel detective who can talk to animals

Perhaps remembering that Touched By An Angel was once a popular show, NBC has ordered a script for a new procedural about an angelic detective who solves supernatural mysteries. The series is based on Thomas Sniegoski’s popular Remy Chandler novels, which follow an angel/Boston P.I. who renounced Heaven to live on Earth, where he can still turn invisible, speak and understand any language, read minds, and talk to animals. Which, of course, are all angelic powers listed in Corinthians, alongside the power to be brooding and good looking.

Franklin & Bash co-creator Bill Chais is set to write the script as well as executive produce, alongside former Charmed producer Jonathan Levin. According to Deadline the project is described as “a procedural with humor, questions of faith and fate, and a very distinct partnership.” Hopefully the show will keep at least some of the books’ titles for episodes, which include Where Angels Fear To Tread, A Hundred Words For Hate, and A Kiss Before The Apocalypse.
