ABC is hoping to hit the jackpot with its latest pilot order.
The network has picked up the drama pilot "Lucky 7" from former "E.R." executive producer David Zabel and Jason Richman, creator of the short-lived series "Detroit 1-8-7" (which Zabel also executive produced).
The pilot will follow seven employees at a service station in Queens whose lives are changed in many unexpected ways when they win a lottery jackpot.
Zabel and Richman will write the project, which comes from ABC Studios and Amblin TV. »
