Telemystery: Fox Orders Pilot Script for Frayed, an Adaptation of Dutch Thriller Bellicher

The Power of Mr. Miller by Charles den Tex

Fox has ordered a pilot script for Frayed, a drama adaptation of the Dutch miniseries Bellicher, which itself was an adaptation of the novel De macht van Meneer Miller (The Power of Mr. Miller) by Charles den Tex.

In the book and Dutch series, software consultancy firm's rising star Michael Bellicher's life turns into a living nightmare when he's framed for a murder and later other crimes by the the mysterious Mr. Miller, who also tries to kill him to close the loop. Bellicher must risk appealing to uncertain loyalties to find out who Mr. Miller is and why he has chosen him as a fall guy all the while avoiding the police.

The US adaptation, written by Sheldon Turner, will center on "an arrogant and entitled corporate consultant, who gets embroiled in a grand conspiracy that forces him to go on the run. As his entire life unravels, he'll come to realize that the only man who can help him is a perpetually paranoid and possibly delusional former NSA agent."
