SBS' drama 'God's Gift' will be the first Korean drama ever to be remade into an American television series.  


Major American broadcasting station ABC has confirmed that they're creating an American remake of 'God's Gift.' The drama will be retitled to 'Somewhere Between' with a total of 10 episodes and is scheduled to air this June.  


ABC also stated that they were able to organize all 10 episodes without a pilot test run which is an exception in this case, as they have high hopes for 'God's Gift.'


Usually, most major broadcasting stations select from 200-300 worth of content, and from there write up a script where 30 of them are pilot productions, and only 2-3 of them are turned into actual series. 


A person in charge of ABC's broadcasting commented, "We could just dub the entire series of 'God's Gift' in its originality and send it out that way. That's how intriguing the story is."


Screenwriter Choi Ran of 'God's Gift' mentioned, "In 2014, the show received much support from viewers.  I am truly honored to hear that it is being remade into an American series."  Choi Ran will be acting as Executive Producer for ABC's version.


The American version of 'God's Gift' will be directed by Duane Clark. Casting by Joseph Broido and Ivan Fecan, and will be written by Stephen Tolkin responsible for writing 'Captain America' and 'Summerland.'


Actress Paula Patton who starred in Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol has been cast for the leading female role.  A male leading role is yet to be confirmed.  Filming will begin in March set in Vancouver, Canada, followed by a nationwide U.S. broadcast in June.

I think they maybe can pull this off. Other than romance story line, crime and thriller is something that American tv series can do very well. tbh I would like to watch it and you guys, this is not a small TV network. It is ABC. Fresh Off The Boat????? How to get away with a murder??? Once upon a time???? Quantico???? Modern family????

they should just air the original drama instead

Another crappy American version of a good Korean drama. They should get some balls and just show the original. Give people some world culture for a change.

Vancouver... where else? So many shows are filmed there that they are beginning to look visually very alike.

We could just dub it and show it that way. Nooo dubbing is horrible I'd rather a show/movie or series had subtitles than be dubbed. I'm gonna have to find a way to watch this remake.

Well, it definitely looks like an American version of the Korean drama, "God's Gift", will officially hit the television screens this summer under a new title called "Somewhere Between".  I know that everyone will definitely love this drama right here.

Great, SBS gets some cash out of it.

It's just kind of sad that American TV show writers are getting lazy

You can say the same for any other countries entertainment in your case then. Remakes are normal.

Yeah but this year everything America is producing seems like a remake.
