Exclusive: Greek Creator Developing Young Adult Adventure Drama for Fox

Greek creator Patrick Sean Smith is taking his special brand of young adult angst global.

Smith is developing an hour-long drama/adventure series for Fox set in the world of young international travelers.

The working title: Wanderlust.

Imagine TV, the purveyor of such acclaimed dramas as Friday Night Lights, Felicity, 24 and Parenthood, is producing with 20th Century Fox.

Prior to creating ABC Family’s long-running Greek, Smith served as a writer on the late, great Everwood.

    It’s been quite a while since teens/early 20 year olds headlined a successful series outside of The CW. Glee doesn’t count, since Matthew Morrison is technically the lead.

      You’re right, Glee doesn’t count. But that’s because it’s a musical. I mean, Peter Gallagher is top billed in The OC and that’s a teen show – right?

    • Joan says:

      Really? Haven’t you heard of ABC Family? Most if not all of those series are headlined by teens/early 20-year-olds.

      For better or for worse, ABC Family has been quietly moving in on the CW’s demographic for a while now.

    Oh dear. He’s hoping we don’t get the stereotypical view of the rest of the world. Euro Trip the series can’t wait.
