LOST executive producers Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis have just sold a new hour-long fantasy TV series called Once Upon a Time to ABC.
The new show "is a mix of sci-fi and fantasy with a strong mystery element. Premise is a modern-day take on fairy tales, with a female protagonist who comes from a unique background." The show is set in a small Maine town during the present time.
Variety reports that the "show will have a strong human emotional center." And it will also have a large ensemble cast. Damon Lindelof is also a part of the project as a consultant.
I don't know about you, but to me it sounds a hell of a lot like the Fables comic book. Regardless, TV could use a few more good fantasy series, and I hope this turns out to be one of them. It has a talented creative team behind it, so there's a good chance of that.
Horowitz and Kitsis wrote the upcoming film Tron: Legacy and its sequel. They’re also penning the horror adventure film Ouija for Universal Pictures.
