Sander, Moses juggle series at Lifetime, Style, more
They’re juggling series in development at Lifetime, ABC and Style Network. In their spare time, Ian Sander and Kim Moses produce original Web series and even promotional content for Disney/ABC shows.
The prolific multi-hyphenates behind Sander/Moses Prods. have just reupped their production pact with ABC Studios, their home base for the past seven years.
Sander and Moses played the development field during the past year after their CBS drama “The Ghost Whisperer” wrapped its five-season run last spring.
The pair have teamed with scribe Lance Gentile (“ER”) on a drama for Lifetime that revolves around a femme doctor brought in to run a medical center that tackles the most elusive cases. For ABC, Sander and Moses are working with feature scribe Michael Cooney on a project, “InHuman,” that started as a one-hour thriller but is now being eyed as a two-hour backdoor pilot. Mark Pellington (“The Mothman Prophesies”) is attached to direct if the revised script is greenlit. Project focuses on a male FBI agent and femme college professor who investigate paranormal-type incidents.
Sander and Moses, who are married, are in the chilly environs of Middleboro, Mass., this week to shoot a pilot for Style revolving around the life of medium Maureen Hancock. The two became well-versed in the world of mediums while exec producing the supernatural-flavored “Ghost Whisperer.” “Maureen Hancock’s Ghost Town” pilot is being produced through the Alphabet’s ABC Media Prods. unit.
On top of all their TV series work, Sander and Moses have produced Web content for “Desperate Housewives,” “Ghost Whisperer” and other shows through their Slam production banner.
“Being a producer right now, you want to be able to diversify into as many platforms as you can,” Sander said. “It’s really fun to figure out where you’re going to go next. Yes, it’s hard to get financing and hard to put things together. But if you’re a producer nowadays, you’ve got to be able to do it all.”
Moses said they’ve been very happy at ABC because they’ve had the freedom to tackle a range of projects for numerous outlets.
“We like being able to put our stake in the ground in a lot of different areas,” she said.
Sander and Moses are repped by UTA.
