When a brutal murder rocks this thriving tourist destination, a repressed detective must return to the musical town he left as a teen - to solve the crime and confront the ghosts that have haunted him since he fled." Bredeweg, Paige, Chu, Schwartz and Ondrasik will executive produce the project, which has a pilot production commitment, for ABC Studios alongside Jonathon Komack-Martin and Mandeville Television's David Hoberman, Todd Lieberman and Laurie Zaks with Chase as a co-executive producer.
