Resurrection Information

Resurrection is an upcoming American fantasy television drama series about what happens if a person thought to be dead suddenly comes back to life in the way they supposedly died. The series is based on the novel The Returned by Jason Mott and is being co-produced by Brad Pitt, Aaron Zelman, JoAnn Alfano, Jon Liebman, Dede Gardner, Jeremy Kleiner, Michele Fazekas, and Tara Butters and directed by Charles McDougall for ABC Studios. The pilot was officially ordered to series on May 10, 2013 and was placed on the schedule as a limited series to run during the 2013"14 television season. On August 4, 2013, it was announced that the series will premiere Sunday, March 9, 2014.


The series follows the residents of Arcadia, Missouri, whose lives take a surprising turn when their loved ones return from the dead, unaged since their supposed deaths, including Jacob Garland, an 8-year-old boy drowned thirty years earlier. Having been found in China, he is brought back to America by an Immigration Agent. His surprise return causes the local sheriff, whose wife drowned trying to rescue Jacob, to learn more about this mystery.

The idea to bring Jason Mott's novel "The Returned" to television was announced in December 2012, just weeks before the publication was released. In January 2013 ABC ordered the project to pilot status and in March bought in Charles McDougall as director as part of a two-year deal he signed with ABC Studios. On March 7, 2013, ABC released its list of potential hour-long pilot pick ups, with the series title changed to Forever. The title would once again change names after ABC ordered it to series status in May 2013.
