EXCLUSIVE: Veteran producer Sabrina Wind has launched Windpower Entertainment, a new production company, which entered a deal with ABC Studios in May and has sold its first project, drama FML, with writer Katie Wech (BH90210) to ABC.
Written by Wech, FML (Female Mid Life) centers around five women who share little more than the carpool lane and are thrown together when one of them disappears, an event that brings their own personal crises to light, and forces them to confront the unique and formidable challenges of FML: Female Mid Life.
