From Deadline:

    Twelve years after The Practice-Boston Legal franchise ended its run on ABC, David E. Kelley is returning to the broadcast network. ABC has given a straight-to-series order to drama The Big Sky, created and executive produced by Kelley. The project, based on THE HIGHWAY, the first book in C.J. Box’s Cassie Dewell series of novels, hails from A+E Studios, which will produce in association with 20th Century Fox Television, part of Disney TV Studios.

    Written by Kelley, The Big Sky is a procedural thriller, in which private detective Cassie Dewell partners with ex-cop Jenny Hoyt on a search for two sisters who have been kidnapped by a truck driver on a remote highway in Montana. When they discover that these are not the only girls who have disappeared in the area, they must race against the clock to stop the killer before another woman is taken.

    Kelley executive produces with Ross Fineman, with whom he works on Goliath, and Box.

    The Cassie Dewell book series includes four novels published to date, THE HIGHWAY (2013), BADLANDS (2015), PARADISE VALLEY (2017) and THE BITTERROOTS (2019).
