ABC has ordered REEF BREAK, from Poppy Montgomery and Ken Sanzel, straight-to-series. The crime drama is based on an idea from Montgomery and will be run by Sanzel.

Montgomery—who had long runs on WITHOUT A TRACE and UNFORGETTABLE—also stars in the series as Cat Chambers, “a thief-turned-fixer for the governor of a stunning and seductive Pacific Island paradise.”

Per ABC, “Impulsive, reckless and irresistible, Cat’s less-than-perfect past gives her an instinctive gift for understanding crime and criminals as she becomes enmeshed in fast-paced, high octane adventures and island intrigue. 

“Cat’s reappearance also makes waves for old friends, enemies and lovers, including an FBI agent ex-husband, her imprisoned crime boss and a police detective lover who is in over his head. Each episode will be a character-driven cocktail of crime, surf, sex and sunshine, and for Cat, the lines between work and play have never been blurrier.”

“We’re thrilled to add this new series fronted by Poppy Montgomery to our summer 2019 slate. It’s an exhilarating and suspenseful ride set against some of the most beautiful locations,” said Channing Dungey, president, ABC Entertainment, in a statement.

“ABC Studios International is very excited to be in business with Poppy Montgomery and Ken Sanzel, the dream team behind this fantastic new series,” said Keli Lee, managing director, International Content, Platforms and Talent, ABC Studios International. “We anticipate a series that will engage audiences around the world and are thrilled to work with our partners, M6 and ABC Network on this truly global initiative.”

The 13-episode first season of REEF BREAK will air on ABC next summer.
