Dawn Ostroff back at netlet with Conde Nast property

A series of pulp fiction novels are the unlikely inspiration for an untitled supernatural drama project at the CW from “Warehouse” 13 scribes Ben Raab and Deric Hughes and “Under the Dome” showrunner Neal Baer.

The project is also bringing Dawn Ostroff back to the network she once ran, this time as a producer through Conde Nast Entertainment.

The project is inspired by a series of dime novels published by the fiction factory Street and Smith, which got its start in the mid-1800s. Conde Nast purchased the company in the late 1950s.

Pilot script revolves around a young woman who can change her appearance at will as a result of genetic bio-hacking. CBS TV Studios is producing.

Baer, repped by Paradigm, is getting ready to go back to work on season two of CBS’ summer hit “Under the Dome” in December. He’s also fielding a pilot script for the Eye with writer Dan Truly.

Raab and Hughes, with CAA, will be co-exec producers on the CW project.

Ostroff was president of entertainment at CW from its inception in 2006 through mid-2011 (after four years with predecessor net UPN). She joined Conde Nast two years ago as president of Conde Nast Entertainment to spearhead its push into film, TV and digital narrative production.
