Martin Gero, Brendan Gall Team With Berlanti Productions for P.I. Put Pilot at ABC (EXCLUSIVE)

ABC has given a put pilot order to a one-hour drama from Martin Gero and Brendan Gall, Variety has learned exclusively.

Titled “Trouble Finds Me,” the series follows a tough but lonely New York stuntwoman who helps an inexperienced single mom take over her late father’s private detective business, forming an odd-couple partnership and friendship as they work their various P.I. cases.

Gero and Gall will write and executive produce. Greg Berlanti and Sarah Schechter will also executive produce. Berlanti Productions and Quinn’s House will produce in association with Warner Bros. Television, where Berlanti Productions is set up under an overall deal.

Both Gero and Gall work on NBC’s “Blindspot,” with Gall serving as a co-executive producer and writer while Gero created the series and serves as showrunner. Berlanti and Schechter are also executive producers on that series. Gero, Berlanti, and Schechter are also all executive producers on the upcoming ABC FBI magician drama “Deception,” which will debut at midseason.

This is also the second put pilot Gero and Gall have set up at the broadcast networks this year, while it is Gero’s third overall. Previously, the pair sold a legal drama to CBS about five multi-racial adopted siblings who fight for justice in the courtroom amid wildly different legal careers. Gero and Alex Berger also scored a put pilot order for “Republic” at NBC, which follows the newly minted female Chief of Staff to a moderate Republican President. Berlanti and Schechter are attached as executive producers on both projects.

One of the most prolific television producers working today, Berlanti currently executive produces CW shows “Riverdale,” “Legends of Tomorrow,” “Arrow,” “The Flash,” and “Supergirl” as well as  “Blindspot.” He will also executive produce the upcoming CW series “Black Lightning,” “Deception,” the DC digital live-action series “Titans,” and the Lifetime series “You.” He is also attached as an executive producer on several other development projects this season, including the “Riverdale” companion series “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina” at CW. 

Gero, Gall, and Berlanti are repped by WME.
