‘The Company You Keep’ ABC Drama Ordered To Series

ABC has given a series order to the spy drama “The Company You Keep” which stars Milo Ventimiglia (This Is Us).

The show is based on the Korean series “My Fellow Citizens” from Korean Broadcasting System. In the American version, a night of passion leads to love between con-man Charlie (Ventimiglia) and undercover CIA officer Emma (Catherine Haena Kim), who are unknowingly on a collision course professionally. While Charlie ramps up the “family business” so he can get out for good, Emma’s closing in on the vengeful criminal who holds Charlie’s family debts in-hand – forcing them to reckon with the lies they’ve told so they can save themselves and their families from disastrous consequences.

The show also stars William Fichtner as Leo, Tim Chiou as David, Freda Foh Shen as Grace, James Saito as Joseph, Sarah Wayne Callies as Birdie, Felisha Terrell as Daphne, and Polly Draper as Fran.

Ben Younger (Snowfall) directed and executive produced the pilot.

The project has also brought on seasoned writer-producer Phil Klemmer as co-showrunner.

Julia Cohen wrote the pilot for the series and serves as executive producer and co-showrunner. Phil Klemmer is also executive producer and co-showrunner. Ventimiglia executive produces along with Russ Cundiff via their DiVide Pictures banner. Jon M. Chu and Caitlin Foito of Electric Somewhere also executive produce with Todd Harthan and Lindsay Goffman. Deanna Harris of DiVide is a producer.

20th Television is the studio.

The series will debut at midseason on ABC in 2023 and stream the next day on Hulu.  We also expect to see the show arrive internationally on Disney+.
