ABC has given pilot orders to three dramas from David Zabel, Aaron Zelman and Byron Balasco, and a comedy from Aaron Kaplan.

In Betrayal, a beautiful but unhappily married female photographer begins a torrid affair with a lawyer for a powerful family.  When he turns out to be defending a murder suspect who is being prosecuted by her husband, the relationship and the case begin a spiraling series of betrayals with cataclysmic results for everyone involved. Zabel will write, while Rob Golenberg and Alon Aranya will executive-produce.

Venice is a modern-day Romeo and Juliet-esque drama about two rival families and the forbidden and dangerous romance emerging between them as they battle for control of Venice. Balasco will write and executive-produce, alongside Peter Johnson and McG, who will also direct the pilot.

Zelman's The Returned will ask what happens when the people you have mourned and buried suddenly appear on your doorstep as if not a day's gone by? The lives of the people of Aurora are forever changed when their deceased loved ones... return.

Pulling is a half-hour single camera comedy that tells the story of three dysfunctional women in their 30s living their lives the way they want, even if society tells them they should have it all figured out by this point. Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky will write, while Kaplan, Sharon Horgan and Dennis Kelly will executive-produce.
