ABC has bought a second high-profile drama project that takes on Robert Louis Stevenson’s split-personality tale of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. Jekyll & Hyde, from ABC Studios, studio-based Mark Gordon Co and feature writer Matt Lopez (The Sorcerer’s Apprentice), is described as a suspenseful, darkly romantic retelling of the classic tale with a unique sci-fi twist that I hear may be cloning-related. Set in modern San Francisco, it centers on a female criminal psychologist who is drawn into the mysterious world of a brilliant but inhibited scientist and his volatile alter ego. Going into this development season, ABC brass identified the Jekyll & Hyde lore as one of the areas they wanted to mine. Now the network has two high-profile projects to choose from: the Lopez/Gordon Jekyll & Hyde and the recently sold Hyde, from writer Sheldon Turner.
