EXCLUSIVE: After working together last season on the ABC/ABC Studios cop drama Detroit 1-8-7, series creator/executive producer Jason Richman and executive producer/showrunner David Zabel have teamed for a new ABC Studios drama project, which has sold to ABC. Richman and Zabel will co-write the project, titled Two Roads, which is in the vein of Sliding Doors. It centers on a young woman who struggles with doubt on her wedding day whether to go through with it or not. The show asks the question, “What if I had made different choices?” and then answers it by following her down both paths. Zabel joined the Michael Imperioli starrer Detroit 1-8-7 at the pilot stage after he liked Richman’s script. Despite solid reviews, the series didn’t get traction in the ratings and was canceled after its 18-episode freshman season. Both Zabel and Richman have deals at ABC Studios — WME-repped Zabel is under an overall; Richman, repped by WME and the Collective, has a pact for two blind scripts. This is the second sale this season for Zabel, who also has Western Gunslinger set up at ABC.
