ABC has purchased a family drama about a minister who comes out gay to his adult children.

Grace, from Mandeville TV, takes place in the fictional town of Grace, Missouri. It revolves around the lives of the adult children of a minister and how they are impacted by their father's later-in-life revelation.

Deadline Hollywood described the drama as “a grounded, unfolding saga of a 21st-century American family and the everyday challenges they face as members of a community and as individuals, and how their faith both guides and complicates their lives.”

The drama is written by Eyal Podell and Jonathan E. Stewart. It is loosely based on Stewart's own life. His father was a preacher who came out.

While a bit reminiscent of Amazon's groundbreaking hit Transparent, in which a parent comes out transgender to his adult children, Grace adds religious elements to the narrative.
