ABC has ordered GET CHRISTIE LOVE, toplined by Kylie Bunbury, to pilot for series pickup consideration for the 2018-19 TV season.
The Pitch alum will play the titular Christie Love, a female CIA agent who leads a highly trained elite ops unit and has the ability to transform into whoever she needs to be in order to get the job done, especially when it’s down to the wire and the stakes are life and death.
Power creator/showrunner Courtney Kemp is writing the reboot of the 1974 TV movie, which also spawned a short-lived series. Vin Diesel also serves as an executive producer along with Debra Martin Chase and Shana C. Waterman.
Get Christie Love joins False Profits in ABC’s drama pilot pickups thus far this year. The network has already ordered two dramas – Nathan Fillion-led The Rookie and Rachel Bilson-led Take Two – straight to series.
