Another primetime sudser may make its way to ABC. In development is a series called The Marquis, that is said to be an hourlong drama project being executive produced by two very well-known executive producers to the nighttime audience, Greg Berlanti (The Flash, Supergirl) and Julie Plec (The Vampire Diaries). They are teaming with Sarah Schechter as another EP in the mix.
According to Deadline, The Marquis is being Written and executive produced by Quantico executive producer/writer Jake Coburn, and is being described as “a sexy and twisted character soap set in the most iconic and exclusive building in Manhattan.”
Coburn also wrote Dirty Sexy Money and Gossip Girl. This production would hail from Berlanti Productions and Plec’s My So-Called Company in association with WBTV, where both companies are based.
This is not the first time Berlanti and Plec have joined forces having previously created The CW drama, The Tomorrow People. In addition, The Marquis also reunites Coburn with Berlanti on whose CW drama Arrow he previously worked.
