ABC Orders “Beauty and the Beast” Pilot
ABC wants to take a tale as old as time and freshen it up a bit.
Following the success of Once Upon a Time, ABC is turning to Beauty and the Beast for a potential television run. No, it’s not a reboot of the series featuring Linda Hamilton and Ron Pearlman. Instead it’s a series based on the classic fairy-tale.
Written by Jericho co-creator Jonathan E. Steinberg, the drama project is described as is a period/fantastical reimagining of the classic fairy tale set in a mythical, dangerous world wherein a beautiful and tough Princess discovers an unlikely connection with a mysterious beast. It is eyed as a potential companion for Once Upon A Time in the Sunday 9 PM slot.
The reboot pilot for the 80s TV series is still in the works for the CW. No word yet on if the series might be picked up.
