Heartland - Adoption Family Drama Receives Put Pilot at ABC + Other Projects in Development

ABC has given a put pilot commitment to Heartland, a one-hour family drama written by Kat Likkel, John Hoberg and Jeremy Hall, who previously worked together on ABC’s Galavant. The project hails from Jon Harmon Feldman and Jennifer Gwartz’s Random Hill, one of three sales at ABC for the recently launched company, along with Acquired and New World. ABC Studios, where Random Hill is under an overall deal, is the studio on all three, with Feldman and Gwatrtz executive producing.

Heartland is described as an unconventional family drama about a couple who adopt a new baby … and the baby’s teenage birth mother. Likkel and Hoberg executive produce, with Hall co-exec producing.

Acquired, written/executive produced by Robby Hull, centers on an angry, acerbic widower who had retreated from the world after the death of his wife years ago. As a result of a freak accident, he now finds himself with a genius-level intellect which he will semi-willingly use to help a homicide detective solve San Francisco’s most perplexing murders.

New World, written/executive produced by Daniel Thomsen, revolves around two estranged brothers, who after the death of their father, try to reconnect by taking their families on a trip together. But when their boat crashes, the two families find themselves trapped on a deserted island and must battle the elements (and their secrets) to not only survive, but to build a life for themselves in this new home.
