clementine-pilotIs Clementine the new black?

That’ll be the question, so to speak, hovering over a new supernatural drama pilot ordered today by ABC and written by Dean Georgaris, whose movie scripts include Paycheck, Tristan + Isolde and the 2004 remake of The Manchurian Candidate.

The logline for the prospective series reads as follows: “A habitual criminal digs into the mystery of her origins after she becomes the target of a group of zealots who fear she possesses latent supernatural abilities that she will one day harness for either profound good or monstrous evil.”

Executive Producers for the pilot are Mark Gordon (Criminal Minds, Grey’s Anatomy), Nicholas Pepper and Ilene Staple.
