We are sure All My Children and One Life to Live fans may have something to say about this. In an interesting move, ABC in a competitive situation where two networks were interested, purchased the dramatic drama, Black Heart from none other than Prospect Park and Kelly Masterson.
In news out of Deadline.com, Prospect Park’s CEO Jeff Kwatinetz and TV partner Josh Barry will executive produce the new project with playwright and screenwriter Kelly Masterson, who created Black Heart. This project reunites Barry with ABC and ABC Studios where he was an executive for 10 years before joining Prospect Park.
The story of Black Heart is said to be about: “An unlikely ascension of the second son to the throne of a multi-billion dollar, family-owned energy company. It centers on the first-born son, twisted and scarred by a fire decades ago, who uses intrigue, manipulation, blackmail and even murder to put his beloved younger brother in power.”
Prospect Park’s other primetime series have included: Royal Pains and Salem.
