Thirteen Episodes Ordered

ABC has given a 13-episode straight-to-series order for drama “Reef Break,” will revolve around a woman who is a former thief who now works as a “fixer” for the governor of a fictional island in the Pacific. The series is based on an idea of Montgomery’s and will be steered by showrunner/executive producer Ken Sanzel. Montgomery is also an executive producer. The network will air “Reef Break” next summer.

“Reef Break” will be produced through ABC Studios and ABC Studios International, and will also be telecast on M6 in France. It is Disney’s international production division’s second global commission after the Ioan Gruffudd-fronted Australian crime drama “Harrow,” and the first to get U.S. distribution.
