James Cameron’s ‘True Lies’ lands at ABC


James Cameron's TV adaptation of his 1994 hit "True Lies" has landed at ABC.

The network has made a script deal with penalty for the project. Lightstorm Entertainment and 20th Century Fox TV are producing with Rene Echevarria as writer/showrunner and co-exec producer.

Having Cameron on a network's lineup would be a boon for any broadcaster, though the plot of "True Lies" (about a superspy whose wife discovers his real job), is territory that been touched on in recent years in projects such as "My Own Worst Enemy" and the upcoming "Undercovers."

If greenlighted, the project will mark the "Avatar" director's second foray into TV after his Fox drama "Dark Angel" back in 2000.
