Disney’s ABC Signature studio is developing a new limited series called “Winter In Paradise”, which is based on the first book in Elin Hilderbrand’s bestselling Paradise trilogy.
The series tells the story of a husband’s secret life and a wife’s new beginning. Irene Steele shares her idyllic life in a beautiful Iowa City Victorian house with a husband who loves her to an extreme. But when her husband dies in a perplexing manner, Irene soon learns that her husband has been living a secret life with an entirely separate family on the distant Caribbean island of St. John. As Irene untangles a web of intrigue and deceit, and as she and her sons find themselves drawn into the vibrant island culture, they have to face the truth about their family and their future.
The new limited series is being written by André and Maria Jacquemetton, with the new series being produced by Ellen Pompeo’s Calamity Jane production company, Andrew Stearn Productions and ABC Signature. With Ellen Pompeo, Andrew Stearn and André & Maria Jacquemetton all executive producing the series.
No release date has yet been announced for the series, but with this show being created by ABC Signature, we can expect it to head to ABC and Hulu in the United States, with an international release on Disney+ as a “Star Original”.
