ABC Developing Thousandth Floor, Based on Upcoming YA Book Series

The Thousandth Floor TV Series

Nothing says “vote of confidence” like developing a TV series before its source material is even published.

ABC is developing The Thousandth Floor, a one-hour drama based on the upcoming young adult novels from Katharine McGee. Maggie Friedman (Witches of East End) will pen the script and executive-produce alongside Greg Berlanti (Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl), Sarah Schechter, Leslie Morgenstein and Gina Girolamo.

Here’s the official logline:

Drama set in 2118, in a thousand-story supertower on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. A young woman’s fall from the 1,000th floor ignites a scandal that ensnares the top-floor elite and the bottom-floor drones. In this hyper-stratified world, the higher you climb, the farther you fall.

The first Thousandth Floor novel, meanwhile, is slated for publication in 2017.
