Josh Friedman of Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles is teaming up with Big Fish writer John August to make an intriguing TV series for ABC.


It's call Chosen, and according to Deadline it's about a teenaged messiah.

Described as a unique tale of family struggle, teen romance and California evil, it explores how a family's life is upended when their 15-year-old daughter is identified as the reincarnated prophet of a mysterious South American religion. But is she their messiah, or a pawn in a darker conspiracy?


Crazy, right?

Last we heard Friedman was working on a pretty bad ass robot show, for NBC with Homeland's producer (which is an excellent team up). Let's hope at least one of these projects gets a green light.

To all the bitchers about the teen romance: Hello there. Have you met any teenagers? Their entire lives revolve around their feels at that age. It's the nature of the beast. Any show with teenagers is going to have teen romance.

TSCC had teen romance. Granted, it was between the eventual savior of the human race and a death-dealing robot, but it was romance nevertheless.

In closing, please shush your fuss.
