Liz Phang and Chris Fedak

Project hails from Amblin TV, Universal Cable Prods.

Syfy has teamed with scribe Liz Phang and “Chuck” co-creator Chris Fedak to develop a mystery drama about a woman’s search for her long-lost sister.

Phang wrote “Woods” as a spec script and brought it to Amblin TV, which is exec producing with Universal Cable Prods. Amblin then recruited Fedak to help Phang shape the concept.

Story revolves around a woman who returns to the mysterious mansion and discovers that the sinister beings behind her sister’s disappearance years ago are still there.

Phang spent two seasons on CW’s “90210″ and also logged a stint on HBO’s “Hung.”

Fedak, who became an in-demand showrunner following his five-season run at the helm of NBC’s “Chuck,”  is having a busy selling season with drama projects percolating at NBC and TNT, among other prospects.

Phang and Fedak are repped by WME.
