Exclusive: Josh Schwartz’s new company lands D.C.-themed project at ABC

Josh Schwartz’s and Stephanie Savage’s new Fake Empire has landed its first major piece of development, a D.C.-set drama at ABC.

Alphabet net has given a put pilot order to Fake Empire’s untitled D.C. project, which centers on a group of twentysomething roommates who juggle their personal and professional lives in Washington. The young politicos find that the ideals that brought them to D.C. don’t always match with the realities of living in the nation’s capital.

Because of the producers, the project could be unofficially nicknamed “OC in D.C.” — although that would never pass muster as the show’s actual title.

Will Fetters, who wrote the recent Robert Pattinson-Emilie de Ravin feature “Remember Me,” is writing the script and will co-exec produce.

Warner Bros. TV, where Fake Empire was launched earlier this year in a blockbuster deal, is the studio. Schwartz and Savage will produce along with Leonard Goldstein, who heads up Fake Empire’s TV operation.
