Aug 20, 2012  •  Post A Comment

A contemporary take on two of American literature’s most memorable characters — Mark Twain’s Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn — is headed for ABC, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The project comes from "Detroit 1-8-7" creator Jason Richman and executive producer David Zabel, with ABC giving a script order to the project, the story says.

The drama, called "Finn & Sawyer," will portray the two fiction icons as young men who meet up again as 20-somethings and start an investigative firm in a steampunk version of New Orleans, the piece adds.

Richman and Zabel will write and executive produce the project, which comes from ABC Studios and Temple Hill Entertainment.
