Tomei packs for ABC’s ‘Eden’

ABC has tapped Marisa Tomei to star in the two-hour movie “National Geographic Presents: Reflections of Eden” for next season.

“Reflections of Eden,” a co-production of National Geographic TV and Hallmark Entertainment, is executive produced by Robert Halmi Sr. and Hank Palmieri. The telefilm was written by Sarah Bird and Ronald Parker, and Tim Hunter will direct.

Tomei will play a scientist who studies orangutans in Borneo for the anthropologist Dr. Louis Leakey. The film is inspired by the real-life experiences of scientist Birute Galdikas.

Separately, ABC confirmed it has ordered Universal TV’s canceled NBC sitcom “Something So Right” for midseason. The entire first-season cast has returned for its ABC run.
