Penn Professor's Book To Inspire TV Series


University Professor Adrian Raine, as many professors do, wrote some books. Unlike most (all?) of the rest, however, Raine's book The Anatomy of Violence: The Biological Roots of Crime was picked up by Homeland producers Howard Gordon and Alex Gansa and inspired a new TV show called Anatomy of Violence, as reported by TV Guide. That's a big deal! Even more impressive, it was bought by CBS. So far they've agreed to a pilot production, but let's be serious: these producers don't mess around.

This drama follows a female FBI agent who begins to work with a mysterious psychiatrist with whom she previously "shared a connection," whatever that means. Professor Raine works in the Departments of Criminology, Psychiatry, and Psychology at Penn. He's also a superhero. Way to go, Prof!
