Set in the world of miracles, “Ayana” features complex and powerful characters who are touched with just a hint of unexplained magic that triggers profound change in their lives.
Chris Sparling is on board to pen the pilot for “Ayana.” Sparling wrote feature film “Buried,” and his latest pic “Sea of Trees” — starring Matthew McConaughey with Gus Van Sant helming — is beginning production.
Jordan Kerner will serve as exec producer on “Ayana,” with Ben Haber producing. Kerner’s feature film credits include both the “Mighty Ducks” and “Smurfs” franchise, along with “Less Than Zero” and 2006′s “Charlotte’s Web.”
NBC is currently considering the project; should the Peacock not nab the adaptation, Universal TV will shop the pilot to other nets.
