Scruples Pilot Picked Up By ABC.
ABC has just green-lighted a pilot based on the best selling Judith Krantz series “Scruples.” Natalie Portman (“Thor,” “Black Swan”), along with Judith’s son Tony Krantz (former CAA agent) will join Annette Savitch, Bob Brush and Mel Harris as executive producers. Brush and Harris will also write for the project.
Branded as the next sexy, Primetime soap, “Scruples” follows Billy Ikehorn, who opens a Beverly Hills boutique called ‘Scruples’, after the death of her senior millionaire husband has left her bored. Valentine O’Neill (sassy clothing designer) and Valentine’s friend “Spider” Elliot (photographer), both unlucky in love, come onboard as employees in her new venture. Valentine has no idea that she’s dating a gay man and Spider’s model girlfriend only loves herself. Along the way, they find love and fortune.
Fans may recall the miniseries, back in the 1980s, which starred Lindsay Wagner (“The Bionic Woman”). Would you watch “Scruples?” Let Soap Opera Fan Blog know through our poll…
