The showrunners of The Riches are heading for some fantasy with their latest project. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Nicole Yorkin and Dawn Prestwich have signed on for the ABC pilot, Captain Cook's Extraordinary Atlas.
They join executive producers Tom Wheeler, who wrote the pilot script, and Thomas Schlamme, who is set to direct. If the pilot gets picked up, Yorkin and Prestwich will serve as executive producers and showrunners of the series.
The story centers around a young girl, played by Jodelle Ferland (Tideland) who finds a unique atlas that serves as a guide to a secret world that lies just underneath our world. Janel Moloney and Patrick Breen have also been tapped to co-star in the pilot.
No production schedule was released for the pilot.
