*Producer Debra Martin Chase has gotten ABC to bite at her latest project “Legacy,” described as a sexy soap and a modern-day twist on the Charles Dickens classic Great Expectations, reports Deadline.com.
Martin will co-executive produce the project, which is her first sale under the overall deal with ABC Studios she signed in August.
Under the pact, she was to hire a dedicated TV executive, which she has now done, bringing in Charles Pugliese as VP at Martin Chase Prods. Previously, he was VP of Production and Development at Darren Star Prods, where he most recently co-produced the ABC/ABC Studios dramedy “GCB.” Prior to that, he was a producer at NYC-based Killer Films.
This is the second drama project this season that is a modern-day reimagining of Great Expectations. The other, Expectations, is set up at the CW with Reese Witherspoon executive producing.
