‘Heart of Life’ will reunite the ‘Crazy Rich Asians’ star and ‘Shadowhunters’ grad with former Freeform exec turned ABC Entertainment president Karey Burke, while Findlay returns to the network after ‘How to Get Away With Murder.’
Harry Shum Jr. and Katie Findlay are ready to get down to some John Mayer.
The Crazy Rich Asians and Shadowhunters star and How to Get Away With Murder grad will feature in Heart of Life, an ABC pilot inspired by the John Mayer song of the same name.
The drama follows two sets of adult siblings from wildly different worlds who discover they are related and must reassess everything they thought they knew about their shared father. As they explore the mysteries of their separate childhoods, they’ll experience the difficulty in overcoming the sins of the past and learn the joys of reuniting with long-lost family.
Shum and Findlay will play siblings Brendan and Sydney Winter. Sydney is described as ambitious, caring and awkward and a type-A personality who takes over her father’s architecture firm. Brendan is a self-centered world traveler who is good at getting by on his father’s money and is often the voice of reason.
