'Blindspot' Duo Prepping Korean-American Drama for NBC (Exclusive)
NBC is looking to Blindspot duo Martin Gero and Christina Kim for its next drama.
The network has handed out a script commitment to an untitled project written by Kim and produced by Gero.
The potential series revolves around three half-Korean women who grew up straddling two cultures and identities are forced to pick sides between their Korean mother and Caucasian father after the latter, the head of a global Asian food empire, is thrown in jail. The drama will uncover dark family secrets and follow the sisters as they step out of their father's shadow to salvage their empire.
Kim, currently a writer and executive producer on NBC's Blindspot, will pen the script and exec produce the drama. The effort hails from Warner Bros. TV, where Gero's Quinn's House banner is under an overall deal.
Kim's credits include Hawaii Five-0, NCIS: Los Angeles and Lost. She is repped by CAA.
The Kim script marks the latest sale for Gero this development season. He's also readying The Secret to a Good Marriage for CBS, a reboot of The L.A. Complex for The CW and Adversaries, starring Archie Panjabi, for NBC. Gero is repped by WME and Ziffren Brittenham.
