We mourned the cancellation of “Pitch,” ABC’s heartfelt baseball drama, after its rookie season. But we felt that the show provided star Kylie Bunbury with her breakout role… and that she would be back soon at the center of another TV project.
And here Bunbury is in the title role in “Get Christie Love,” an hourlong drama from “Power” creator/showrunner Courtney Kemp and producers Vin Diesel, Debra Martin Chase and Shana C. Waterman, which has a pilot production commitment at ABC.
The project is inspired by the cult 1974 blaxploitation-themed TV movie “Get Christie Love!” and subsequent short-lived series, which also aired on ABC.
The new “Christie,” written by Kemp, is an action-packed, music-driven drama that centers on Christie Love (Bunbury), an African American, female CIA agent who leads a highly trained elite ops unit. Beautiful and charismatic, Christie transforms into whoever she needs to be in order to get the job done especially when it’s down to the wire and the stakes are life and death.
