More details have been revealed about the fairy tale drama series being developed by former Lost producers Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz. It was previously reported that the pair had teamed up with Lost co-creator Damon Lindelof to produce the new show.
Variety now reports that Once Upon a Time has been sold to ABC and will present “a modern-day take on fairy tales, with a female protagonist who comes from a unique background.” The project will be set in present-day Maine and will feature a large ensemble cast. It is also said to combine elements of science-fiction and fantasy.
Once Upon a Time is now in development by ABC for the 2011-12 season.
