Affleck Offers 'Resistance' to ABC

(Posted August 16, 2005 by Leah Yoakum)

LOS ANGELES ( Ben Affleck is taking another shot at television, closing in on a deal with ABC for a drama pilot about a fractured America.

Affleck will write and executive produce a pilot called "Resistance," about a near-future United States that has splintered into separate nations following devastating terrorist attacks. The show will focus on a group of people trying to restore the Constitution and democracy, the showbiz trade papers report.

Sean Bailey, one of Affleck's partners (along with Matt Damon and Chris Moore) in the production company Live Planet, will exec produce the project with the "Good Will Hunting" Oscar winner. Bailey has a production deal at ABC's sister studio, Touchstone.

The "Resistance" script will be Affleck's first try at writing a TV project solo; he was a writer and producer on ABC's short-lived, interactive mystery "Push, Nevada" in 2002. The deal would also bring him to the same network as his new wife, "Alias" star Jennifer Garner.
