ABC is Flesh-ing out its pilot orders with a thriller from a Shondaland vet.
The network has given the go-ahead to Flesh and Blood, a thriller from onetime Grey’s Anatomy/Scandal producer Jenna Bans.
The potential series centers on a politician’s son who shows up nearly 10 years after his presumed death and rocks the local community. His reappearance, naturally, has repercussions for the neighbor jailed for his murder and the police officer that handled the case.
In addition to writing several episodes each of Scandal and Grey’s Anatomy, Bans created the one-and-done Shondaland drama Off the Map, and before that wrote for Desperate Housewives.
Bans will pen the project and executive-produce alongside Mandeville Productions and ABC Studios.
