With multiple networks interested, Fox has taken in Broken Girl, a drama project from writer John Scott Shepherd, 20th Century Fox and Prospect Park. It focuses on emotionally damaged Trish Derring who, after she loses the man she saw as her last hope for happiness, decides she has nothing left to live for only to discover she’s literally invincible. Blending elements of Girl With The Dragon Tattoo and Unbreakable, Broken Girl follows an antiheroine who must live with a body that has become both her fortress and her cage. Shepherd, repped by Paradigm and Joel McKuin, recently created the NBC comedy Save Me and has the feature Jump at Relativity with his producing partners Apartment 3B, Jennifer Klein and Sheldon Turner.
