ABC has made a deal with “Project Greenlight” executive producer Sean Bailey to develop the pilot “The Unlimited.” Bailey wrote the spec script.
“The Unlimited” centers on a Texas basketball coach who discovers that his recently deceased father was actually one of the world’s most brilliant minds. Not only wasn’t he told of his dad’s powers, but hethen finds out that he’s inherited the genius.
“I’ve always admired superhero origin stories,” Bailey said. “This is something like that, only a little more grounded. It’s truly aspirational. Most people believe they’re meant for more, but there’s some bureaucracy or the man keeping them down. What if your whole life was kept from you?”
