Up in the Air co-writer Sheldon Turner has sold a new series to ABC based on the classic horror tale Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.

This new iteration of the story follows a doctor who begins experiencing bizarre side effects from an experimental eye treatment that greatly alters his personality. When he falls asleep, he becomes the opposite of his anti-social self, a fearless daredevil that can confront anything.

Sheldon Turner is writing the pilot script, and he will produce alongside Jennifer Klein. There is no word on when the pilot may actually go into production.
