Esmeralda Coming to ABC

Continuing with the popularity of shows like Once Upon a Time, Disney and ABC are revisiting the story of The Hunchback of Notre Dame. This time, the story will be seen through the lens of Esmeralda.

Esmeralda is a new limited/event series that is being written by Evan Daugherty and produced jointly by ABC Studios and Mandeville Films. The series will be executive produced by David Hoberman, Todd Lieberman and Laurie Zaks of Mandeville Films along with Daugherty.

Developing live-action television shows based on classic novels and fairy tales continues to be a hot trend in the television industry. ABC will also be releasing Once Upon a Time in Wonderland, a spinoff of the popular Once Upon a Time.

Currently no casting information is available for Esmeralda nor a timeline for when it will be on the air.
