Lee Daniels has landed another project at ABC, this time teaming up with country music star Brian Kelley of Florida Georgia Line.
The two will executive produce Moss Landing, a drama with musical elements from writer Lee Shipman (AMC's The Son) and Disney's 20th Century Fox TV, where Daniels is based. The project has a script commitment plus penalty.
Set in a small Florida coastal town, the potential series would follow the sweeping love story of disgraced country star Marion James and Sky Miller, and African American gospel and soul singer. The show would unravel the mysteries of their troubled pasts and follow Marion and Sky through the highs and lows of rebuilding their lives and the love that binds them together -- all set to genre-blending musical numbers.
