In the latest round of script sales, ABC has nabbed a high-concept light drama from No Ordinary Family co-creator/executive producer Jon Feldman. Described as Moonlighting meets Early Edition, the project centers on a charming ex-con (think George Clooney in Ocean’s Eleven) who realizes that he’s receiving video links to the news reports of the beautiful, ambitious TV crime reporter who once upon a time put him away. The only catch: He’s getting her news stories before she actually films them, giving this unlikely duo 24 hours to prevent the crimes from taking place. Feldman is writing the script and is executive producing with fellow No Ordinary Family executive producer Bob Sertner for ABC Studios where the two are based with overall deals.
Through his deal at CBS TV Studios, Samuel L. Jackson has sold a legal show to CBS. Written by Rob Bragin (Greek), the untitled project centers on a father and a son. Jackson and Bragin are executive producing for CBS Studios and Jackson’s UppiTV.
