ABC has a new supernatural drama in the works, Variety reports.
The network failed to order the back 9 for this fall’s paranormal/horror offering 666 Park Avenue, and scrapped plans for the supernatural procedural Weird Desk. It's taking another stab at a ghostly series, however, with The Returned.
The drama will reportedly focus on “a Midwestern town where the dead return to change the lives of those they left behind.”
Plan B and Brillstein Entertainment are developing the show with ABC Studios with Aaron Zelman set to write and executive produce.
Zelman was the co-executive producer on The Killing and a consulting producer on Damages, two strong, serialized mysteries. It will be interesting to see what he brings to this genre.
