Due to the ongoing actors and writers strike, Disney’s ABC has delayed the upcoming drama series, “High Potential”, which is based on the popular French detective series HIP (High Intellectual Potential). ABC picked up the show for a series back in May and it was originally scheduled to launch during the 2023/2024 season, but this hasn’t been possible and it will now launch in the fall of 2024.
“High Potential” follows Morgan, a single mom with three kids and an exceptional mind, who helps solve an unsolvable crime when she rearranges some evidence during her shift as a cleaner for the police department. When they discover she has a knack for putting things in order because of her high intellectual potential, she is brought on as a consultant to work with a by-the-book seasoned detective Karadec, and together they form an unusual and unstoppable team.
The new series is being created by ABC Signature and stars Kaitlin Olson as Morgan, Daniel Sunjata as Karadec, Javicia Leslie as Daphne, Deniz Akdeniz as Lev “Oz” Osman, Amirah J as Ava, Matthew Lamb as Elliot and Judy Reyes as Selena.
The show is being created by Drew Goddard, who is also an executive producer with Sarah Esberg executive produce for Goddard Textiles. Rob Thomas serves as showrunner and executive produces alongside Dan Etheridge of Spondoolie Productions, as well as Pierre Laugier and Anthony Lancret of Itinéraire Productions, a UGC company and Jean Nainchrik of Septembre Productions, a Mediawan Company. Alethea Jones is director and executive producer. Kaitlin Olson serves as producer.
