ABC Taps 'Twilight' Writer as Showrunner for Pilot Deadline

Melissa Rosenberg, who adapted the "Twilight" books into movie scripts, has been tapped by ABC as the showrunner for the ABC Studios drama pilot "Big Thunder," reports Deadline.com.

The pilot is based on Disney's Big Thunder Mountain roller coaster ride, and tracks a late 19th century New York doctor who relocates to a frontier mining town with his family.

Rosenberg is also the executive producer/showrunner of ABC’s new drama "Red Widow" from ABC Studios, and has an overall deal with ABC Studios that she signed in October, the story adds.
