ABC is in business with the creator of “The Shield,” who is joining forces with “Dead Like Me” writer Karl Gajdusek to bring a futuristic thriller to the network, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The network has committed to a pilot for “The Last Resort,” from “The Shield’s” Shawn Ryan. Produced by Sony Pictures Television, the show focuses on the activities of an isolated U.S. nuclear submarine.
The pilot will be written by Gajdusek and Ryan.
Ryan also executive produced "The Chicago Code," which ran for 13 episodes on Fox earlier this year.
