Hawley in a deal with ABC Studios

MUMBAI: ABC will stay in business with The Unusuals creator Noah Hawley, who has inked a blind deal with sister ABC Studios to write two new projects.

First off the New York native joined a rock band as a singer-guitarist and did a series of gigs on the East Coast. "I was gonna be a rock star but got tired of living in a van with three filthy, penniless men," he said.

Disillusioned with the music business, where success has "so little to do with the quality of the music," Hawley, who was also the band‘s songwriter, decided he wanted to write more in-depth stories.

So he switched to books, publishing his first novel, A Conspiracy of Tall Men in 1997. That was followed by two more, "Other People‘s Weddings" in 2003 and The Punch in 2007.

In between the first two books, both of which were optioned by Paramount, he wrote a feature script that became the 2006 film The Alibi starring Steve Coogan.


The ABC Studios then approached Hawley about a deal. For his encore Hawley is looking to employ some of the storytelling elements he used on Unusuals where stories with different characters often intersected in unexpected ways. Also, he plans to continue mixing comedy and drama.

On the feature side, Hawley, repped by CAA and McKuin Frankel Whitehead, has two feature scripts he wrote with his twin brother Alexi -- Dead in the Water and Home Free -- in contention at Touchstone.
