Sleepy Hollow co-showrunner Albert Kim will develop the project.
NBC is set to develop a drama about a Korean family with the help of Sleepy Hollow co-showrunner Albert Kim.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the drama will feature a nearly all-Asian cast. Currently, the drama is untitled but the project has already received a script commitment at NBC.
The drama revolves around a family-owned Korean electronics corporation that suffers from the death of their CEO, who passes away on the eve of launching their American subsidiary. In his will, a perviously unknown heir is revealed – an unaware woman who grew up in the US.
Set to inherit the CEO’s wealth and fame, the drama has been described as “a Shakespearean battle for power” by THR.
Kim, who was a co-showrunner on TV series Sleepy Hollow, based the concept on Korean chaebols – multinational business conglomerates that are run by single ruling families.
Dan Lin and his Warner Bros. Television-based banner. Lin Pictures head of television Lindsey Liberatore will co-exec produce.
