ABC picked up the pilot for single-camera comedy Hail Mary, based on the Austrian series Braunschlag. The ABC Studios and Sony Pictures Television co-production focuses on a young mayor of a small town, Mary Wolf. She navigates a dysfunctional family, a dying father, disgruntled citizens, a nearly bankrupt town and the mafia breathing down her neck. The ABC pilot is a switch on the Austrian original, created by David Schalko. Brian Gallivan, Seth Gordon and Tariq Jalil will executive produce the SPT series alongside ORF-Enterprises, which oversaw the Austrian original that ran for eight episodes in 2012. Gordon will direct the pilot.
