Congratulations are in order for Justin Hartley (ex-Adam Newman, The Young and the Restless; ex-Fox Crane, Passions), whose budding career as a producer just got another exciting notch. ABC has agreed to put the drama No Good Deed into development, and the series is set to be executive produced by the daytime alum under his ChangeUp Productions banner.
Variety reports that the project, which has received a script commitment with a penalty attached, follows a warm-hearted botany professor with a dark secret who welcomes a troubled student into her home. But the seeming victim turns out to be a deadly parasite who uses her wiles and charms on vulnerable friends and family, unearthing secrets in this small mountain town and destroying lives in order to cement her own twisted bond with her professor.
Hartley will be joined by Jeannine Renshaw, who will write and executive produce; Nzingha Stewart, who will direct and executive produce; and ChangeUp's head of development, Julianna LaRosa, who will executive produce.
No Good Deed is the latest project Hartley has set up for development via ChangeUp, which he launched in 2019. As Soap Central previously reported, the actor will star in and executive produce a pilot for CBS called The Never Game, based on the novel by Jeffrey Deaver.
