Taken writer applies his particular set of skills to an ABC winery drama

As reported by Variety, ABC has enlisted Taken series writer Robert Kamen and producer Aaron Kaplan to develop a new drama series. Titled Crush, the show will reportedly involve “a woman who, after her hedge fund crashes, inherits a vineyard in the foothills of the Sierra Mountains.” If that doesn’t sound enough like a TV premise, the woman’s vineyard is also “near a town populated with eccentric people.” All that’s missing is a shocking secret, a love triangle, or some kind of connection to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and this could be the next TV sensation.

Kamen co-wrote all of the Taken and Karate Kid movies (plus a “story by” credit on the 2010 Karate Kid remake), so this is a bit of a departure for him. Kaplan was an executive producer on ABC’s The Neighbors and currently executive produces the network’s Secrets And Lies.
