CBS Sets ‘American Gothic’ Drama From Amblin TV, ‘Good Wife’ Alum

CBS is developing a family sudser with Amblin TV and former “Good Wife” scribe Corinne Brinkerhoff.

Brinkerhoff is set to write the script and exec produce, as part of her overall deal with CBS Television Studios. Amblin TV’s Justin Falvey and Darryl Frank and Full Fathom Five’s James Frey and Todd Cohen are set as exec producers.

Not to be confused with the Eye’s 1995 series of the same name, “American Gothic” follows a prominent Boston family, struggling to redefine itself after a chilling discovery implicates their recently deceased patriarch in a series of murders spanning decades, all while under the mounting suspicion that one of them may have been his accomplice.

Brinkerhoff at present is a co-exec producer on CW’s “Jane the Virgin.” She previously worked on CBS TV Studios series “The Good Wife” and “Elementary.”

Amblin TV is the banner behind CBS’ summer dramas “Under the Dome” and “Extant.”

Brinkerhoff is repped by UTA and attorney Peter Nichols.
