My Love From Another Star to be remade by major American broadcasting company
The broadcasting company ABC has recently handed out a script commitment to remake the hit Korean drama My Love From Another Star. While this may upset many fans of the original, the good news is that the premise sounds like it will remain true to the original story.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, "ABC's take is described as epic supernatural love story about a world-famous pop star, Lark, and her anti-social neighbor, James, who happens to be from another planet. Disillusioned by the pettiness of human nature, and a resident of Earth for the past several hundred years, James has a centuries-old rule that he will never use his abilities to intervene in the lives of the people around him. But when he gets a premonition that the infuriatingly self-centered but compelling Lark is going to be murdered, James finds himself drawn into her chaotic life and falling deeply in love — just as he finally has the chance to return to his home in the stars."
Another piece of news that will put fans minds' at ease is that the creator of the original series, Park Ji Eun, will be one of the executive producers alongside Bomi Moon from HB Entertainment, which produced the Korean version. The screenplay will be adapted by experienced drama writers Elizabeth Craft and Sarah Fain (CW's The 100, 666 Park Avenue, The Vampire Diaries, Dollhouse).
