Amidst this week’s network TV renewals, cancellations and additions, NBC has picked up a dark cable-type drama titled Game of Silence.

It centers on a rising attorney (Revolution‘s David Lyons) on the brink of success who could lose his perfectly crafted life when his long-lost childhood friends unexpectedly reappear after 25 years.

When a dark secret resurfaces, the brotherhood bands together to right the wrongs of their shared past, pushing the limits of their loyalty and quenching their thirst for revenge.

Bre Blair (Last Vegas), Larenz Tate (House of Lies) and Michael Raymond-James (Sons of Liberty) co-star as characters named Jessie, Tony and Gil — respectively.

Game of Silence is CSI alum Carol Mendelsohn‘s first under her new overall deal with Sony Pictures Television, with Universal Television boarding the series as a co-production.

Set for an order of 10 episodes, the series is based on the Turkish show Suskunlar, and penned by David Hudgins (Parenthood).

It is executive produced by Mendelsohn, Julie Weitz and director Niels Arden Oplev.
