ABC Orders Huck Finn-Tom Sawyer Drama


More than a year after the publishing world engineered a Huckleberry Finn and Tom Sawyer merger, ABC is following its lead with a new drama titled Finn & Sawyer, as The Hollywood Reporter has learned. The series, brought to you by the team behind ABC's short-lived Detroit 1-8-7, will feature the two iconic American literary characters reuniting as twentysomethings in a steampunk New Orleans, where they team up to form a private eye operation. No word on whether high schoolers will be forced to watch it.
