ABC has turned to a former "ER" showrunner to adapt a Dutch drama, Deadline.com reports. Adapting a show called "Overspel," about an unhappily married woman who starts an affair with a powerful attorney, will be David Zabel, the story reports.

Called "Betrayal" in the U.S. adaptation, the drama will be written and executive produced by Zabel, who recently sold a Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn drama set in New Orleans to ABC.

"Betrayal" is produced by ABC Studios, which is also adapting another Dutch format, "Penoza," or "Red Widow" in its U.S. version.
