ABC Orders Edgar Allan Poe, 'Pan Am' Drama Pilots
UPDATED: It's been a busy day over at ABC.
In addition to the two comedy pilots the network picked up earlier on Tuesday, ABC has given the green light for a one-hour drama pilot, simply titled POE, as well as a jet-setting Pan Am soap.
POE is a crime procedural that follows Edgar Allan Poe as the world's first detective, using unconventional methods to investigate dark mysteries in 19th-century Boston.
Chris Hollier penned the script and will serve as supervising producer, with Dan Lin as executive producer. Warner Bros. and Lin Pictures are behind the project.
Pan Am, penned by Jack Orman (ER), is a sexy soap that focuses on the stewardesses and pilots, and their adventures.
Sid Ganis will serve as co-executive producer; Tommy Schlamme, Nancy Hult Ganis and Orman will executive produce. Schlamme is also set to direct the pilot.
