ABC has given a pilot commitment to No Way Back, a drama series project based on the 2013 mystery/thriller novel by best-selling author Andrew Gross, Deadline reports.
Seriable Potential Set-up: No Way Back centers on two women who join forces and embark on a dangerous odyssey to find the truth and save their lives. One is a suburban mother and ex-cop, whose chance meeting with a stranger in a hotel ends when the man is murdered and she’s the only witness.
The other is a young woman from Mexico who has a deadly secret that has driven her into hiding until she can prove her innocence. It’s a desperate hunt that leads them into a nefarious web of treachery, lies and corruption involving drug lords, arm dealers and shadowy figures in the highest echelons of government.
The project is written by American Horror Story EP Jessica Sharzer who will exec produce with Imagine TV’s Brian Grazer and Francie Calfo.
