Steampunk Version of Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn Headed to ABC THR
A contemporary take on two of American literature's most memorable characters -- Mark Twain's Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn -- is headed for ABC, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The project comes from "Detroit 1-8-7" creator Jason Richman and executive producer David Zabel, with ABC giving a script order to the project, the story says.
The drama, called "Finn & Sawyer," will portray the two fiction icons as young men who meet up again as 20-somethings and start an investigative firm in a steampunk version of New Orleans, the piece adds.
Richman and Zabel will write and executive produce the project, which comes from ABC Studios and Temple Hill Entertainment.
