Karen Janszen Sells Pilot to ABC

November 2, 2011 rainmanagement

We are pleased to announce that our client KAREN JANSZEN has sold a music-driven 1 hour drama pilot to ABC Studios/ABC called SOMEONE LIKE ME along with songwriting powerhouses Stephen Schwartz (Multi-Oscar, Golden Globe, and Grammy Award-winning lyricist/songwriter of Wicked, Godspell, Enchanted) and John Ondrasik (Multi-Platinum, Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter, a/k/a Five for Fighting) and producer Richard B. Lewis (Grammy-winning and Oscar-nominated producer of August Rush, Backdraft, Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves).

The show explores the lives of two sisters, one a singer-songwriter legend, the other forever in her shadow, whose worlds collide as adults, sending their family and friends spinning—especially a 17-year-old girl whose own musical talents are exploding.

Karen has enjoyed great success throughout her career in the feature film world, having seven of her screenplays produced – including the recent No.1 box office hit DOLPHIN TALE for Warner Bros. / Alcon.  Other credits include A Walk to Remember, Gracie, and Duma.
