Musical Drama ‘Harmony’ From ‘Fosters’ Team Lands Production Commitment at ABC

The series takes place in the town of Harmony, New York, where residents are known to sing and dance to express their emotions. When a murder shakes the town to its core, a detective who left the town as a teenager must return to help solve the crime.

Bredeweg and Paige will write along with Chase, who created the project. Bredeweg and Paige will executive produce with Chase, a recent alum of the 2017 Sundance Episodic Lab, co-executive producing. Jon Chu will also executive produce and direct the pilot. David Hoberman, Todd Lieberman, Laurie Zaks and Jonathon Komack-Martin will also executive produce. Grammy winner Stephen Schwartz and Five for Fighting’s John Ondraski will compose original music in addition to executive producing. ABC Studios will produce in association with Hoberman’s Mandeville Films.

In addition to co-creating “The Fosters,” Bredeweg and Paige previously collaborated as writers on the Spike miniseries “Tut” and co-created the series “Fly Girls” with Jeff Collins.

Bredeweg and Paige are repped by CAA. Mandeville is repped by UTA. Chase is repped by Paradigm and Affirmative Entertainment.
