ABC has given a put pilot order to a new drama starring Laverne Cox. Currently titled Spirited, the one-hour drama would follow a fake psychic (Cox) who realizes she can really communicate with the dead. She decides to put her con-woman past behind her and actually start helping people.

Elizabeth Banks is attached as an executive producer under her Brownstone Productions banner. Brownstone’s Max Handelman will also executive produce. Heather Mitchell, who previously wrote for and produced Scandal and developed Still Star-Crossed for television, will serve as writer and executive producer. Warner Bros. Television, where Brownstone is under an overall deal, will produce.

This is not the first time Banks and Cox have collaborated on a TV project. Back in March, Cox was cast as one of the leads in The Trustee, a female buddy cop comedy also set up at ABC with Banks executive producing. The project was ultimately not picked up to series.
