EXCLUSIVE: CSI creator Anthony Zuiker has teamed with Gossip Girl executive producer Sara Goodman for Taboo, a new drama project that has been sold to ABC. It stems from Zuiker’s overall deal with ABC Studios, which has him partnering with studio-based Brillstein Entertainment Partners on development.

Taboo, which will be produced by ABC Studios, Brillstein and Zuiker’s Dare To Pass banner, is based on an original idea by Zuiker who is segueing from the procedural world of CSI to serialized drama. To be written by Goodman, it is described as a sexy soap and centers on a stay-at home-mom who goes back to work as an undercover psychological profiler for the FBI, but the job isn’t nearly as dangerous as the sexual obsession she falls into with the man she’s investigating. “Sara Goodman is solid gold, and we are very lucky to have her on board to bring Taboo to life,” Zuiker said. “It’s a perfect ABC show.”
