Reaper creators Tara Butters and Michele Fazekas have joined new ABC drama series Resurrection as showrunners. Written by Aaron Zelman and directed by Charles McDougall, Resurrection, one of the best-received ABC drama pilots this year, revolves around the people of Arcadia, MO, whose lives are forever changed when their deceased loved ones suddenly start to return. Butters and Fazekas will executive produce alongside Zelman, JoAnn Alfano, Dede Gardner, Jeremy Kleiner and Jon Liebman for Brillstein Entertainment, Plan B and ABC Studios. For ICM Partners-repped Fazekas and Butters, the gig stems from the overall deal they signed at ABC Studios in February. As part of the deal, they served as executive producers/showrunners on ABC/ABC Studios pilot Gothica, working alongside creator/executive producer Matt Lopez.
