Disney’s ABC has ordered a pilot for a brand new drama series called “Acts Of Crime”, which is being created by Sam Esmail, who created “Mr Robot”.

ABC has been developing the show since September.  The show is being made by Universal Content Productions and ABC Signature.  With Chad Hamilton also executive producing the series along with Sam Esmail, who will also be directing and writing the series.

No details on what the series is about have yet been released. However, in a statement from ABC, they said that “Acts of Crime” will be a “unique spin” on the genre.


Sam Esmail has previously worked on “Mr Robot”, “Briarpatch” and “The Resort”.  He also directed 10 episodes of “Homeland”.  He is currently under an overall deal with NBCUniversal to create content for both linear and streaming platforms.

With this being created by ABC, we should also expect the show to be released on Hulu and on Disney+ internationally via Star.
