ABC Orders Four Drama Pilots Deadline
ABC has given pilot orders to four dramas. Deadline.com reports that the network ordered “The Astronaut Wives Club," "Warriors," "Agatha" and an untitled project from Richard LaGravenese.
“The Astronaut Wives Club” comes from Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage’s Fake Empire and Michael London’s Groundswell Productions. It’s based on a novel from Lily Koppel and is set in the 1960s, telling the story of the women behind some of the male heroes of the American space race, the piece adds.
The untitled project is about “the love and rivalry between two equally matched, powerful socialites who play out their obsessive attraction and seduction of each other through their manipulation of others,” the story says.
“Warriors” is about military doctors and nurses, while “Agatha” is about an ex-con who becomes a criminologist.
