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 .
