NBC is adapting “The Bone Collector” in 2020 with the new drama LINCOLN.

This isn’t the first time the Jeffery Deaver book—which kicked off a series that has spawned more than a dozen sequels—has been adapted: Denzel Washington and Angelina Jolie starred in a 1999 film. In the NBC version, “the former NYPD detective and forensic genius Lincoln Rhyme was at the top of his game until a serious accident at the hands of a notorious serial killer forces him out of the field,” the network previews. “When Amelia Sachs, an intuitive young officer who’s got her own gift for profiling finds herself hot on the killer’s trail, Rhyme in turn finds a partner for this new game of cat and mouse. As the unlikely detective duo joins forces to crack the city’s most confounding cases, they must also race to take down the enigmatic “Bone Collector” who brought them together.”

Though viewers won’t be introduced to the television version of Lincoln (played by GRIMM’s Russell Hornsby) and Amelia (Arielle Kebbel) until midseason, Kebbel is thrilled with her latest job.

“I love this character,” she says in the video below. “I am so excited to get started filming…I was a big fan of the movies, I’m now reading the book series.”

“From the moment I read the sides for Amelia, I felt so connected to her, she continues. “I was like, ‘I have to do this, I have to bring her to life.’ She has PTSD, she has multiple anxiety disorder. She’s an incredibly intuitive cop. Even though she’s not seasoned, she’s got a skill set like no other. So when she partners with Lincoln Rhyme, they become this dynamic duo. They go on these missions together to find these serial killers…it’s, honestly, one of my dream roles.”
