ABC Sets Philip Marlowe Drama from ‘Castle’s’ Andrew Marlowe

Michael De Luca producing new spin on Raymond Chandler's enduring gumshoe

ABC is developing a contempo spin on Raymond Chandler’s enduring gumshoe Philip Marlowe, shepherded by “Castle” showrunner Andrew Marlowe and Michael De Luca.

Fellow “Castle” scribe Terri Edda Miller is co-writing the script with Marlowe (pictured above with Miller). The pair exec produce for ABC Studios with De Luca, a film vet who has become active in TV in recent years.

Marlowe and MIller’s spin on the hard-boiled, wise-cracking private eye is described as a “sexy and stylish” update on the character whose job famously took him into the seamy side of the City of Angels. The bar is high for scribes and prospective stars, because it’ll be hard to top the work of Dick Powell in the 1944 pic adaptation of “Murder, My Sweet” or Humphrey Bogart in 1946’s “The Big Sleep.”

Marlowe has been the showrunner of ABC’s “Castle,” the murder-mystery drama starring Nathan Fillion, since its inception. Miller is a writer and consulting producer on the show. De Luca’s TV projects include TNT’s upcoming drama “Mob City” and a redo of “Shogun” for Fox.

CAA reps De Luca, Marlowe, Miller and the estate of Raymond Chandler.
