Share on Reddit

ABC has given a pilot production commitment to Harmony, a musical drama from Pippin & Godspell composer Stephen Schwartz and Five For Fighting’s Jon Ondrasik, studio-based Mandeville TV, The Fosters‘ co-creators Peter Paige and Bradley Bredeweg, and ABC Studios.

The Disney-owned network is teaming with Grammy- and Oscar-winning composer Stephen Schwartz (Wicked), Five for Fighting's John Ondraski and The Fosters creators Bradley Bredeweg and Peter Paige for a musical cop drama called Harmony.

The drama, which has received a sizable production commitment from the network, revolves around the residents of Harmony, New York, who have the most unique dialect in the world, they sing their feelings and dance their emotions. When a brutal murder rocks the thriving tourist destination, a repressed detective must return to the musical town he left as a teen — to solve the crime and confront the ghosts that have haunted him ever since he fled.

The Fosters duo Bredeweg and Paige will write the script for the ABC Studios and Mandeville drama alongside Jacob Chase. Bredeweg and Paige will exec produce alongside Mandeville's David Hoberman, Todd Lieberman, Laurie Zaks and Jonathon Komack-Martin. Chase will co-exec produce; Jon Chu will also exec produce and direct the potential pilot. Three-time Grammy winner and six-time Tony nominee Schwartz (Godspell, Pippin, Wicked) and John Ondrasik (aka Five for Fighting) will compose music and exec produce the drama. Schwartz and Ondrasik previously worked together on a pair of songs for Five for Fighting, including "Above the Timberline." The latter is best known for songs including "Superman" and "100 Years."
