ABC Orders Two Drama Pilots

Jan 20, 2017  •  Post A Comment

ABC has added two drama projects to the development slate for next season, ordering pilots for “The Crossing” and “The Deception,” TVLine reports.

“‘The Crossing’ has a timely-sounding premise, with war refugees seeking shelter in an American town,” the report notes. “Only there’s a sci-fi twist: The refugees are from America… and traveling back in time from 250 years in the future.”

“‘Deception — not to be confused with the short-lived NBC drama of the same name from 2013 — centers on ‘superstar magician’ Cameron Black, who uses his powers of illusion to (what else?) help the FBI solve crimes after a scandal ruins his career as a magician,” TVLine adds.

“The Crossing” comes from writers Dan Dworkin and Jay Beattie, while “Deception” is written by Chris Fedak and executive produced by Greg Berlanti and “Blindspot” creator Martin Gero.
