LeVar Burton Set For TV Movie / Pilot For NBC

LeVar Burton Set For TV Movie / Pilot For NBC

Rolling around the internet today we saw a tweet from @levarburton announcing his new TV movie deal with NBC.  The movie, called "The Jensen Project", is actually what they call a backdoor pilot that could lead into a new series for NBC.

"Jensen" also stars Kellie Martin, Brady Smith, & Patricia Richardson, and revolves around a group holed up in the mountains to solve the world's problems. When one goes rogue, the others are forced to try and stop him.  The two hour movie is sponsored by Walmart and Proctor & Gamble in a bid to bring back family friendly TV to the airwaves.

"We are committed to delivering more quality family entertainment options to parents across the country," Walmart chief marketing officer Stephen Quinn.

No info is available yet on a release date, but we'll keep you informed as soon as we know.
