EXCLUSIVE: ABC has bought SkinDeep, a drama project from Up In The Air co-writer Sheldon Turner. The project hails from Turner and Jennifer Klein’s company Vendetta Prods., which has a first-look deal at ABC Studios. Turner will write SkinDeep, described as a sexy soap set against the backdrop of a family-run beauty empire. This marks new territory for Turner, who penned a darker, Jekyll & Hyde-themed medical drama for ABC last season and whose feature credits include Up In The Air and X-Men: First Class. Turner is making his feature directorial debut with By Virtue Fall, a gritty drama starring Eric Bana and Armie Hammer. He and Klein are executive producing SkinDeep through ABC Studios.
