Robert De Niro and Jane Rosenthal's Tribeca Productions continues to expand into television with "Private," a series from Sonar Entertainment and James Patterson Entertainment based on Patterson's bestselling Jack Morgan series of novels. Sonar announced today that the company has chosen Brad Furman ("The Lincoln Lawyer") to direct the adaptation. John McLaughlin ("Black Swan") has written the initial two-episode pilot and will script future episodes as well.

"Private" will be a 13-episode hourlong drama centered on Morgan, a former CIA agent who runs the world's most elite investigation firm. His staff of the best and the brightest global investigators take cases that involve the secrets of the globe's most influential people.

Patterson's 113 books have grossed over $3 billion in worldwide sales to date, with novels featuring his character Alex Cross having been adapted to the big screen in "Kiss the Girls," "Along Came a Spider" and "Alex Cross." Patterson will serve as executive producer alongside Tribeca's De Niro, Rosenthal and Berry Welsh and Leopoldo Gout of James Patterson Entertainment.

Tribeca Productions also has neo-Nazi drama "The 4th Reich"  and a TV series adaptation of "The Good Shepherd" in the works at Showtime and are behind the "About a Boy" series premiering midseason on NBC. "Private" is not yet attached to a network.
