Canadian screenwriter Sean Reycraft (90210, The Vampire Diaries) penned the Wish List script and will show run the one hour pilot about three women on a healing road trip for Entertainment One and the Canadian Broadcasting Corp.

TORONTO -- The Canadian Broadcasting Corp. has ordered to pilot Wish List, a one hour drama from Canuck TV scribe Sean Reycraft (90210, The Vampire Dairies).

Indie Entertainment One is producing.

The homegrown drama follows Kara, a wife and mother who decides to reconnect with her daughter and mother-in-law after losing her husband.

While on a road trip, the three women arrive in a small town where everyone throws coins in the local wishing well so that someone’s wish can be granted.

After Sam, the daughter, steals the coins, all three women are condemned to make amends by staying in the town and granting wishes, no matter how big or small.

And as they attempt to realize the town's wishes, the three women learn that their own dreams can be realized in the most unexpected ways and places.

Los Angeles-based show-runner Reycraft will show-run the pilot for Entertainment One and the CBC, Canada’s public broadcaster.

“Sean is a such a talented and gifted writer. When you see the pilot, you will see his voice and sensibility,” Rachel Fulford, vp of creative affairs at Entertainment One, said Friday.

No word on casting, which is just getting underway.

The CBC on Thursday also gave a pilot order for the homegrown mockumentary Gavin Crawford’s Wild West, which stars Canadian comic and actor Gavin Crawford (This Hour Has 22 Minutes).
