Creator of '666 Park Avenue' Sells Legal Thriller, Supernatural Western to Broadcast Nets THR
David Wilcox, the creator of ABC's "666 Park Avenue," has sold projects to both ABC and the CW, with the former a legal thriller and the latter a supernatural Western, reports The Hollywood Reporter's Live Feed.
The ABC project, "Entrapment," focuses on a prosecutor who is accused of murder. She turns to her former professional adversary to help defend her against the charges, the story says. ABC has given it a put pilot commitment.
The CW project, "Badlands," is about a family haunted by vengeful ghosts, the story says. The project has received a script deal from the CW, and is in second position to "Entrapment."
"The sales come as broadcast development season winds down, with several of the networks lighter on drama fare this season. As The Hollywood Reporter reported in early September, the explosion of cable and digital outlets was causing a talent drain at the networks," the story says.
