'Private Practice' EP to Run New ABC Project Deadline
Barbie Kligman, a former executive producer of “Private Practice,” has joined ABC’s project “Secrets & Lies” as writer, executive producer and showrunner, reports Deadline.com.
The show, which is an adaptation of an Australian crime drama, has a 10-episode commitment from ABC and is looking at casting options, the story says. The original Australian show, which is set to debut in that country next year, is about a father who finds the body of a young boy and falls under suspicion.
ABC gave the new project a straight-to-series order last month, as we reported previously.
