Fox has given a put pilot commitment to a family drama from “Nashville” alums Meredith Lavender and Marcie Ulin, Variety has learned.
The untitled one-hour soap would follow a couple who, after twenty years of marriage, tries to reignite their passion and strengthen their family by starting over in paradise in Hawaii. They move their two teenage kids to the island of tourist fantasies, but the reality of paradise is not all sun, surf, and sex on the beach. Dark family secrets, a complicated social structure they don’t understand, old mistakes, and messy new relationships threaten to tear the Campbell family apart, even as they struggle to find their way back to each other.
Lavender and Ulin most recently collaborated as writers and executive producers on “Nashville.” Prior to that, they worked as co-producers and writers on “Missing” and as producers and writers on the reboot of “Charlie’s Angels.” Among their many other TV credits, both Mar and Kasdan currently serve as executive producers on the ABC comedies “Fresh Off the Boat” and “Speechless.”
Lavender and Ulin are repped by CAA and attorney Todd Rubenstein. Kasdan and Mar are repped by WME, while Kasdan is also repped by repped Sloss Eckhouse LawCo.
