ABC Studios Into "Being Erica"

According to reports, ABC will develop a US version of the Toronto-lensed CBC TV series "Being Erica", to be written by Maggie Friedman ("Eastwick") for ABC Studios.

Created by Jana Sinyor, "Being Erica" stars Canadian actress Erin Karpluk as 'Erica Strange', a woman who begins seeing a therapist to deal with regrets in her life, only to discover the therapist (Michael Riley) has the ability to send her back in time to relive these events and even change them.

CBC's "Being Erica" debuted in 2009 and subsequently sold to more than 150 countries, including the US where it has been airing over ABC's SoapNet cable channel.

The UK is also interested in another remake of the series for Brit audiences, set in Glasgow, Scotland, to be produced by Big Talk Productions, titled "You Again".
