Inside Move: ABC tries it ‘Platonically’

Net greenlights prod'n for midseason

ABC is poised to give Touchstone Television’s comedy pilot “Platonically Incorrect” another shot.

Romantic laffer, which stars Tom Everett Scott and A.J. Langer as best friends with messed-up love lives, had great buzz last spring, but it didn’t make the cut when the Alphabet was finalizing its series picks for fall.

Now, ABC execs have told Touchstone they’re willing to greenlight production on a reworked pilot episode and a completely new second episode while also ordering up some additional scripts — all for midseason.

Gabe Sachs and Jeff Judah are exec producers/showrunners on “Platonically,” which was created by exec producer Darlene Hunt. Michael Bostick and Tom Shadyac of Shady Acres Prods. are also exec producers.
