Tee hee - that's kinda what I meant in the comment above (1st one in the thread.) The HP comparison seems so imprecise, that's why I'm sticking by my theory that it came out in a pitch meeting to give the suits a selling point. XD And apparently somebody ran with it!

Haha! I totally can see that scenario happen. \o/

Actually, I just thought of a potential HP comparison that might kinda work. ;) Just comparing the premise to HP in general seems a stretch, but if you drill down and, say, present it as: "What if it were a show about aurors? Not specific to Rowling's universe in that they are dark wizard hunters, mind you.. but essentially those who are tasked with policing in ways that defend against, as well as utilize, magic for investigation." And you know, aurors are essentially just government employees, they have work issues, they have baggage, they have babies (Hi, Teddy Lupin. ;) )

I can't imagine anything THAT specific would make it into a pitch meeting, of course. Hee. But it's a stronger comparison IMO.
