Marked men action project on fast track

UPN sci-fi duo have no 'Phobia' of introducing new skein to ABC

Call the men in white coats: The execs at ABC have contracted a new “Phobia.”

The Alphabet web has ordered the one-hour pilot from Marked Men Entertainment, the TV boutique led by writer Trey Callaway and director Michael Katleman.

Artists Television Group will produce “Phobia,” a high-concept action skein about a brilliant psychotherapist who leads a team into “Mission: Impossible”-like scenarios.

Show is said to be on the fast track for production in the event of writers’ and actors’ strikes next summer and could be ready as soon as midseason.

Callaway’s credits include the feature “I Still Know What You Did Last Summer” and the upcoming “The Sum of All Fears.” Katleman directed and/or created pilots including “VR.5,” “Enemy” and “Day One.” His resume also includes work on “ER,” “The X-Files” and “Dark Angel.”

Callaway and Katleman first worked together as showrunners on the UPN sci-fi series “Mercy Point,” which Callaway created. The duo also worked with director Tim Burton to exec produce the Columbia TriStar Distribution pilot “Lost in Oz.”

The pair were repped by AMG’s Rob Wolken and the William Morris Agency’s Bill Douglass.
