Kelley and Fazzio will write and executive produce.

Melissa Loy and Temple Hill's Marty Bowen are also executive producing. ABC Studios will produce.

The original series, which ran for four seasons beginning in 2011, starred Emily VanCamp, Madeleine Stowe, Gabriel Mann, and Nick Wechsler. PTI RDSRDS
