Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, who co-wrote the book of Spider-Man Turn Off the Dark, will pen a drama based on the classic German legend of Faust for NBC, according to Deadline.com.

From Mark Burnett and Roma Downey, "Faust" is described as a "faith-based medical procedural and a contemporary take on the popular tale about a scholar who sells his soul to the Devil for ultimate knowledge, which will explore questions of faith and the supernatural in a grounded, realistic way."

Aguirre-Sacasa will executive produce the project with Burnett and Downey of LightWorkers Media.

Aguirre-Sacasa is also developing the Fox drama "Riverdale," which is based on the characters from the Archie comics.
