ABC Family Greenlights Drama Pilot ‘Stay’

The project joins previous pilot orders for ”Gorgeous Morons“ and supernatural drama ”Beyond“

As part of ABC Family’s plan to double its original programming over the next few years, the network has given the okay for pilot production on the new drama “Stay.”

The one-hour show joins previous pilot orders for “Gorgeous Morons” and supernatural drama “Beyond.”

This thriller follows a recently widowed police detective and his two daughters who are stranded at a mysterious hotel. Their only hope of escape is to uncover what’s really going on behind closed walls.

“‘Stay’ is an emotionally powerful story about a fractured family that comes back together under the most unexpected of circumstances,” Karey Burke, ABC Family’s EVP of programming and development, said in a statement. “‘Stay’ is a haunting and surprising ride that we are excited to bring to life.”

“Stay” is written and executive produced by Spenser Cohen. Jon Turteltaub (“National Treasure,” “Sorcerer’s Apprentice”) will direct the pilot and also serve as executive producer, along with Anna Halberg.
