Deadline Hollywood reports that SLEEPY HOLLOW executive producer and showrunnner Albert Kim, Greg Berlanti’s Berlanti Productions (The CW’s ARROW, THE FLASH, SUPERGIRL, and LEGENDS OF TOMORROW) and Warner Bros TV has set up a put pilot commitment at Fox for KUNG FU, an action drama. This potential series has no relation to the ’70s KUNG FU series that starred David Carradine.
More from Deadline:
Written by Kim, Kung Fu is an action-driven procedural about a young Chinese-American woman who inherits her father’s kung fu studio, only to discover it’s actually a secret center dedicated to helping members of the Chinatown community who have nowhere else to turn. With the help of a former star pupil — a smart and driven ex-Marine — she vows to continue the school’s mission. In the process, she discovers things she never knew about her cultural background and family’s heritage, including a connection to a legendary ancestor.
Kim executive produces with Berlanti Prods.’ Berlanti and Sarah Schechter.
Kim most served as executive producer/co-showrunner on Fox/20th TV’s Sleepy Hollow, and before that as writer/co-executive producer on the CW/Warner Bros. TV’s Nikita. He also developed at WBTV last season. Kim is repped by ICM Partners and attorney Jeff Frankel.
