ABC Will Produce New Marriage Anthology, Restaurant Dramas
The series are "Committed," an anthology series based on the iHeartMedia original podcast, and an untitled family restaurant drama (working title "Rice") from writer Zahir McGhee (For the People).

The Untitled Zahir McGee Project (aka Rice), is a family drama set in the world of fine dining.
