Asian Family Drama in Development at NBC

Share on Reddit

NBC is looking to Sleepy Hollow co-showrunner Albert Kim for its next soap.

The network is teaming with Kim to develop an untitled family drama that, should it move to pilot, would feature a nearly all Asian cast.

The untitled drama, which received a script commitment at the network, revolves around a family-owned Korean electronics corporation that is rocked when its CEO dies on the eve of launching their American subsidiary, with his will revealing the existence of a previously unknown heir. Kim based the original concept on Korean chaebols, multinational business conglomerates like Samsung that are run by single ruling families that often go through succession drama.It's described as a multicultural soap, the story of a modern-day Anastasia — an ordinary woman who grew up halfway across the world in the U.S., unaware of her elite status as corporate royalty. Poised to inherit fame, wealth and influence beyond her dreams, her emergence ignites a Shakespearean battle for power amongst her newfound siblings in the L.A.-based drama.

Kim will pen the script and exec produce the drama alongside Dan Lin and his Warner Bros. Television based banner. Lin Pictures head of television Lindsey Liberatore will also exec produce.
