Another primetime sudser may make its way to ABC.  In development is a series called The Marquis, that is said to be an hourlong drama project being executive produced by two very well-known executive producers to the nighttime audience, Greg Berlanti (The Flash, Supergirl) and Julie Plec (The Vampire Diaries). They are teaming with Sarah Schechter as another EP in the mix.

According to Deadline, The Marquis is being Written and executive produced by Quantico executive producer/writer Jake Coburn, and is being described as “a sexy and twisted character soap set in the most iconic and exclusive building in Manhattan.”

Coburn also wrote Dirty Sexy Money and Gossip Girl. This production would hail from Berlanti Productions and Plec’s My So-Called Company in association with WBTV, where both companies are based.

This is not the first time Berlanti and Plec have joined forces having previously created The CW drama, The Tomorrow People.  In addition, The Marquis also reunites Coburn with Berlanti on whose CW drama Arrow he previously worked.

So, what are your thoughts on the news of the proposed ABC primetime character soap, The Marquis?  Share your thoughts on the concept in the comment section below!

I would rather have ”Mystery and Intruge” than “Sexy and Twisted”

Sexy stuff. sex anything is really no longer a big deal and it usually turns out quite stupid .

You are right su0000, sexy works on Showtime or Netflix, when a network tries sexy it ends up being boring!

This sounds awesome, but I don’t watch ABC (GH is my one exception).

I do love Greg Berlanti’s work. My husband and I watch a LOT of CW. Especially for folks in our demographic (50ish).

They haven’t given us much to go on with the description. So, meh — until they give us a bit more insight into what the shows about.

I always enjoy Arrow and many of the CW shows. I watch Quantico, The Flash, Vampire Diaries. So I will be watching.

I hope “sexy and twisted” is just some way to catch our attention. Because I did like the first seasons of Vampire Diaries, and Arrow, even though I think it’s starting to lose it’s way.

I will pass on this.
If ABC wants to do something productive then combine the elements of ONE LIFE to LIVE with the cast of ALL MY CHILDREN and produce it as a night time prime show….call it LANDVIEW or call it Pine Valley or call it whatever but it would be better than some of the crap that ABC currently has.
