A developmental deal to bring a popular time-traveling Korean drama to ABC is being spearheaded by former Lost actress Yunjin Kim, according to Deadline Hollywood.
Kim, who is playing one of the lead characters on ABC nighttime soap Mistresses, will be working with production company Fake Empire to develop an American version of Nine: Nine Travels, a 20-episode serial that aired on Korean cable channel tvN earlier this year.
The actress will serve as executive producer alongside three others.
The show will be written by Derek Simonds and focuses on a man who has nine magical sticks that allow him to travel to 20 years in the past, where he tries to prevent a murder that destroyed his family.
