NBC has ordered FOUND, a new drama from Nkechi Okoro Carroll. (This marks Carroll’s third series on-air, with ALL AMERICAN and ALL AMERICAN: HOMECOMING airing on The CW.)

According to NBC, “In any given year, more than 600,000 people are reported missing in the U.S. More than half that number are people of color that the country seems to forget about. Public relations specialist Gabi Mosely (series star and producer Shanola Hampton) — who was once herself one of those forgotten ones — and her crisis management team now make sure there is always someone looking out for the forgotten missing people. But unbeknownst to anyone, this everyday hero is hiding a chilling secret of her own.” The series stars Shanola Hampton, Brett Dalton, Gabrielle Walsh, Arlen Escarpeta, Karan Oberoi, Kelli Williams, and Mark-Paul Gosselaar.

“We are so happy to be working with Greg Berlanti and Nkechi Carroll on this incredible project that is so close to their hearts,” said Lisa Katz, President, Entertainment Scripted Content, NBCUniversal, in a statement. “FOUND is very compelling while also shining a light on an issue that is extremely relevant, and we know with this group at the helm these stories will be told authentically across all aspects of the production. Additionally, we have been determined to find a vehicle for Shanola and this project on NBC could not be a more perfect fit.”

Added Carroll: “Getting to put FOUND on the air and share it with everyone is such an incredible dream come true. The situation with missing people in this country is truly an epidemic in and of itself. I was inspired to create FOUND to not only entertain, but to help be part of the solution. I am so thankful to my producing partner Lindsay Dunn and my partners at WBTV, NBC, Universal and Berlanti Productions for all of their help and support. And I’m especially grateful to be reunited with Susan Rovner and Liza Katz, both of whom have been champions of my stories since early in my career.”

In addition to Carroll, the series is produced by Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, Lindsay Dunn, DeMane Davis, and Shanola Hampton.
