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.Um, why? Two shows with the same name and similar tones? Doesn't seem like a smart move from ABC. No ma'am.
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.
