EXCLUSIVE: The Mark Gordon Company has set up two more drama projects at ABC through the company’s overall deal at ABC Studios — a character-driven procedural written by Tom Donaghy, creator of the ABC drama The Whole Truth, and a project penned by feature scribe Dean Georgaris (Paycheck). Both are executive produced by Gordon and Nick Pepper.
The untitled Tom Donaghy drama, which the Mark Gordon Co is producing with ABC Studios-based Michael McDonald, centers on a big city criminologist who is brought in to help local police crack a case involving a shocking string of disappearances. But the chief detective she’s been hired to help is her father — and they haven’t talked in 10 years. The Georgaris-penned Clementine, produced by the Mark Gordon Co and Ilene Staple, centers on a profoundly troubled 28-year-old psychic who sees her life to begin to change in unexpected ways when she decides to stop running from her past. The two dramas join three other sales by the Mark Gordon Co: a drama at ABC with writers Kathryn Price and Nichole Millard, and comedies at ABC and Fox.
