ABC Family Orders Drama Pilot ‘Stitchers’

ABC Family has given a pilot order to procedural drama “Stitchers,” from scribe Jeffrey Schechter.

Reality-bending vehicle revolves around a young woman recruited into a government agency where she is “stitched” into the mind of a person who recently died to investigate murders and crimes that would otherwise go undetected.

Schechter will exec produce alongside Jonathan Baruch and Rob Wolken. Production will begin in June.

The order for “Stitchers” comes after ABC Family tabled plans for the drama pilot “Alice in Arabia in the wake of protests last month by the Arab community about the script’s depiction of an American woman kidnapped in Saudi Arabia.
