ABC Buys New Primetime Soap 'Taboo'

ABC Logo

ABC is looking to add to its primetime soaps with Taboo, a new project from the CSI creator Anthony Zucker and Gossip Girl executive producer Sara Goodman.

 Deadline was the first to report the deal, which is part of a larger deal Zucker already had in place with ABC Studios. Brillstein Entertainment Partners and Zucker’s Dare to Pass will all team up for the production.

Taboo is based on an original idea by Zucker and will be written by Goodman. According to Deadline, the drama is described as “a sexy soap centered on a stay-at-home-mom who goes back to work as an undercover psychological profiler for the FBI, but the job isn’t nearly as dangerous as the sexual obsession she falls into with the man she’s investigating.”

Zucker and Goodman will serve as co-executive producers on the project along with JoAnn Alfano and Margaret Riley.
