ABC Buys Prime-Time Soap From 'CSI' Creator and 'Gossip Girl' Scribe Deadline
ABC is banking on the teaming of Anthony Zuiker, the man behind "CSI," and Sara Goodman, the executive producer of "Gossip Girl," for a new prime-time soap opera called "Taboo," reports Deadline.com.
“’Taboo,’ which will be produced by ABC Studios, Brillstein and Zuiker’s Dare to Pass banner, is based on an original idea by Zuiker, who is segueing from the procedural world of ‘CSI’ to serialized drama,” the story reports. “To be written by Goodman, it is described as a sexy soap and centers on a stay-at home-mom who goes back to work as an undercover psychological profiler for the FBI, but the job isn’t nearly as dangerous as the sexual obsession she falls into with the man she’s investigating.”
Zuiker praised his partner, saying, “Sara Goodman is solid gold, and we are very lucky to have her on board to bring 'Taboo' to life." Zuiker also declared that ABC is the right network for the project: “It’s a perfect ABC show.”
