ABC Lands Twelve Apostles Drama From 'Prison Break' Creator
ABC has picked up a high-profile project from Prison Break creator Paul Scheuring revolving around the mysteries surrounding the Twelve Apostles.
Titled Zero Hour, the ABC Studios project is described as an epic adventure revolving around a skeptical everyman who is swept up in one of history’s greatest conspiracies. His passion leads him on a dangerous journey around the world as he collects clues that will unlock a mystery surrounding the Twelve Apostles but also clues to his own identity.
Lorenzo Di Bonaventura and Dan McDermott are attached to executive produce the project through their Di Bonaventura Pictures Television shingle.
Scheuring, who created the 2005 to 2009 Fox drama Prison Break, will pen the script and executive produce.
The project marks the latest this development season from Di Bonaventura’s shingle. The producer, via his deal with ABC Studios, also has a pair of comedy projects as well as dramas Golden Gate and a Walter Mitty-type project with The Blind Side scribe John Lee Hancock set up at the network.
