Mark Twain’s The Adventures Of Huckleberry Finn has experienced a number of adaptations for film and tv. And it appears that trend is going to continue for ABC, but with a few changes.
Details after the break.
The Hollywood Reporter revealed that a new drama, based on the characters from Twain’s classic novel, will be coming to ABC. Named Finn & Sawyer, the series is an idea from Jason Richman and David Zabel (Detroit 1-8-7 and ER).
Finn & Sawyer is an adventure themed series on the two characters who re-meet again in their 20s. The two decide to open their own investigating firm in a “bustling and steampunk New Orleans.”
The project is coming from ABC Studios and Temple Hill Entertainment, with Richman and Zabel writing and producing. There’s no date yet for when the show is scheduled to premiere.
