ABC Picks Up Dramedy Pilot “False Profits”

abc banner

ABC has picked up dramedy series to pilot, the network announced Tuesday.

The hourlong project, from writer and executive producer Kayla Alpert, follows a team of down-and-out women in suburban Arizona as they fight their way to the top of the cutthroat world of a multi-level marketing cosmetics business.

Jason Reed and Sabrina Wind also serve as EPs.

The project will compete against other pilots for series pickup consideration for the 2018-19 fall TV season.

False Profits marks the network’s first drama pilot pickup, though ABC has already ordered two drama projects straight-to-series: Take Two starring Rachel Bilson and Eddie Cibrian and Nathan Fillion-led The Rookie.

On the comedy side, the network has picked up Kenya Barris’ untitled family sitcom starring Alec Baldwin straight to series and ordered a pilot for an untitled 1970s-set sitcom from Last Man Standing‘s Tim Doyle.
