New Drama to Disney's ABC "Milo 2.0"

David DiGilio will adapt Debra Driza's upcoming book "Mila 2.0" with Shonda Rhimes and Betsy Beers on board to executive produce.

Based on Debra Driza's upcoming book Mila 2.0, the drama is described as a thriller about a young woman who discovers that she's a Mobile Intel Life-like Android, or MILA, an experiment in artificial intelligence created by the U.S. government and her scientist mother who kidnapped her when she was found to have human emotions.

DiGilio will pen the script and executive produce alongside Rhimes and Beers, the producers behind ABC's Grey's Anatomy, Private Practice and Scandal.

Driza's young-adult novel, her first, will be published in in March by Katherine Tegen Books, an imprint of Harper Collins.

DiGilo, repped by UTA, Industry Entertainment and attorney Karl Austen, also has The Last H.O.P.E. set up at Showtime about the last hospital on Earth. He came out of Disney's writers program and wrote Eight Below, the Paul Walker canine nature adventure, for the studio. He also created Traveler, the 2007 terrorist thriller show, which starred Matt Bomer. He's attached to pen the sequel to Tron: Legacy for Disney.
