ABC is moving forward with a project from director-producer Jake Kasdan and playwright-screenwriter Kate Robin (“Six Feet Under”), reports Deadline.com.

ABC has given a script commitment plus significant penalty to the project, a family soap. The project, from 20th Century Fox TV, is about the aftermath of the disappearance of a successful woman in New York City, the piece notes. Both Robin and Kasdan will executive produce, with Robin writing the script.

On the pairing of Kasdan and Robin, Deadline notes: “This is the duo’s third consecutive collaboration. The two first worked together on the HBO comedy pilot ‘Spring/Fall’ starring Tea Leoni and Hope Davis, which Robin wrote and Kasdan directed. Then they teamed for a drama project about the female secret service agents who work on the protective detail of the first lady, which sold to Fox with penalty last season, also through 20th TV.”
