ABC Signs on for High-Concept Sci-Fi/FBI Drama From Feature Director Brett Ratner and 'Law & Order's' Barry Schindel Deadline

Teaming for a new drama project at ABC are high-profile feature film director Brett Ratner ("Tower Heist," "Rush Hour") and Barry Schindel, producer of “Law & Order” and “Castle," reports.

The project, “Tomorrow,” is “a high-concept law enforcement procedural about an FBI agent who gets trapped in a time travel scenario,” the piece reports. “Ratner, who is set to direct, and Schindel, who serves as showrunner, executive produce with [Katherine] Lindberg, [Ted] Cyr and Anonymous Content’s Michael Sugar and Nicole Romano.”

The project, created and written by Lindberg and Cyr, is financed by Reliance’s Georgeville Television.

“Like all Georgeville projects, ‘Tomorrow,’ now in development, has a script-to-series commitment, meaning that if ABC likes the script it would trigger a 13-episode series order,” the piece reports.
