Greg Berlanti Developing YA Novel THE THOUSANDTH FLOOR into ABC TV Series

Greg Berlanti is at it again!

The producer of Supergirl, Arrow, The Flash, and Legends of Tomorrow will be developing Katharine McGee’s futuristic novel THE THOUSANDTH FLOOR into a television series for ABC.

Set in 2118, the story explores a society confined to a 1000-story skyscraper where the wealthy live at the top and the less privileged at the bottom. A fitting tagline reads: “The higher you are… the farther there is to fall.” The first novel in this planned trilogy is set to be published in 2017.

The Thousandth Floor

Drama set in 2118, in a thousand-story supertower on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. A young woman’s fall from the 1,000th floor ignites a scandal that ensnares the top-floor elite and the bottom-floor drones. In this hyper-stratified world, the higher you climb, the farther you fall.

Maggie Friedman, a collaborator of Berlanti, will be joining forces on the project to write the show’s pilot. Friedman and Berlanti have previously worked together — notably on Dawson’s Creek. The project is shared by Berlanti Productions and Alloy Entertainment; Warner Bros. TV is the studio.
