Another one? Now, ABC orders a version of 'Beauty and the Beast'


Last week, CW ordered a reboot of the 80s version of 'Beauty and the Beast'. Now, ABC has ordered another version as well.
The female-skewing network is moving forward with its reimagining of the classic fairy tale set in a mythical, dangerous world where a beautiful and tough princess discovers an unlikely connection with a mysterious beast.

Human Target scribe Jonathan E. Steinberg (Jericho) will pen the project with Gary Fleder (Life Unexpected) and Mary Beth Basile (October Road) attached to executive produce the ABC Studios project through their Mojo Films shingle.
Um, why? Two shows with the same name and similar tones? Doesn't seem like a smart move from ABC. No ma'am.

With all the kids having ADHD these shows must be aimed at adults.

They are going overboard with the faerie tales now. Love Once Upon a Time but this can be overkill.
