Variety is reporting that the ABC Family cable channel has greenlit production on a series pilot written by Desperate Housewives scribe Kevin Murphy based on the AiT/PlanetLar graphic novel Nobody written by Alex Amado, Sharon Cho, and illustrated by Charles Adlard (Astronauts in Trouble).

 

ABC Family's VP of Original Series Programming Kate Juergens described Nobody as 'sort of Gilmore Girls meets Kill Bill.'  The protagonist of Nobody, Jessica Drake gives up a normal live to save her daughter -- and though she doesn't die, her existence is erased from the memories of her family and the world at large.  Blessed (or cursed) with the ability to change her features, Drake is the latest in a line of 'Nobodies,' individuals who give up a life of their own to safeguard society.
