The Secret Circle's Andrew Miller has sold his third project this development season.

The scribe will return to the sci-fi world with Saga, a drama set up at ABC, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

Miller will write and executive produce the project, which tells the story of an author of a best-selling book series (think Twilight) who goes missing before she can complete the final installment in her epic fantasy saga. After a family of fans discovers that she's been kidnapped into the very real world of her books, they do their part and attempt to rescue her.

Amblin Television's Justin Falvey and Darryl Frank are on board to executive produce the ABC Studios entry alongside Full Fathom Five's James Frey and Todd Cohen.

In addition to Saga, Miller is also teaming with Gangster Squad director Ruben Fleischer for a soap set in the world of Texas ranches and rodeos and an adaptation of Leonardo DiCaprio starrer The Beach, both set up at Fox.

Miller most recently served as co-showrunner alongside Kevin Williamson on The CW's witchy drama The Secret Circle, which was canceled after one season. He's repped by WME.
