TETHER (Amazon, New!) - Kevin Hamedani and Travis Betz have set up a potential drama at the company about "the terrifying journey of Madelyn Woods, a woman driven to find her kidnapped husband and son and extract revenge on those who hurt them... and murdered her.

(Deadline.com)
WONDER YEARS, THE (ABC, New!) - Saladin K. Patterson, Lee Daniels and Fred Savage are set to team for a reboot of the 1980s series, which "chronicles how a middle-class Black family in Montgomery in the turbulent late-1960s - the same era as the original series - made sure it was the Wonder Years for them too." The project, which has a pilot production commitment, will be directed by Savage and written by Patterson, inspired by his experiences growing up in Montgomery, Alabama. Lee Daniels Entertainment's Marc Velez will also executive produce for 20th Century Fox Television with original co-creator Neal Marlens serving as a consultant. (Deadline.com)
