ABC Family is getting in on the growing sci-fi genre, with the pilot order of the new paranormal procedural drama Stitchers.
Stitchers, written by Jeffery A. Schecter, will follow the life of a young woman as she is recruited into a covert government agency. This agency is no FBI or CIA, no this agency recruits members to be “stitched” into the minds of the recently deceased. By using their memories, the agents will investigate murders and decipher mysteries that “otherwise would have gone to the grave.”
ABC Family’s order comes a month after the family network axed their new drama Alice in Arabia. Alice in Arabia was in early stages when the show came under fire from Muslim civil liberty organizations for it’s plot-line and portrayal of the Muslim communities.
Stitchers joins previously orders of new series Recovery Road and Unstrung.
Based on Blake Nelson’s young adult novel, Recovery Road tells the story of a teenager girl, Maddie, struggling with addiction. Maddie is described as a party girl who is one day confronted by her high school guidance councilor. Her councilor gives her the options of either entering rehab or being expelled. The series will follow Maddie as she balances her high school life and her struggles in rehab.
Unstrung will take viewers into the world of competitive tennis, as we learn about the it’s world through the eyes of a brother-sister duo, Luke and Ellie Holt. The Holts seem to have it all, but a major family secret is about to turn their lives upside down.
