'Harry Potter' Star Rupert Grint Is On His Way To TV

Weasley is our king! Weasley is our king!

Harry Potter” actor Rupert Grint is coming to NBC with a put-pilot order for a new one-hour drama, according to Deadline. A put pilot generally means the network has agreed to air the pilot or could face a substantial penalty, so it seems likely we’ll see Ron Weasley‘s TV magic on screen.

The untitled show reportedly follows a New Yorker, played by Grint, who is obsessed with a comic book called “Imperial City” that was created by his dad before his death. After discovering he might not have all the issues of the comic, Grint’s character goes on an adventure that convinces him Imperial City is real, and he needs to save it.

Grint is also reportedly producing on the project, so it’s pretty obvious NBC knows Ron Weasley is a keeper.
