Lawrence Bender and Kevin Kelly Brown (an executive producer on the original series) will also reprise their executive roles this time around. It was first developed for Fox and was originally based on the YA book by Metz and Laura J. Burns. Produced by Jason Katims, who would go on to produce Friday Night Lights, Parenthood, Boston Public and About a Boy, it starred Shiri Appleby, Jason Behr, Katherine Heigl, and Brendan Fehr. The drama explored topics including forbidden love.
