Sarah Connor Chronicles creator's next show is about a 15-year-old messiah born in California

Josh Friedman of Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles is teaming up with Big Fish writer John August to make an intriguing TV series for ABC.

It's call Chosen, and according to Deadline it's about a teenaged messiah.

Described as a unique tale of family struggle, teen romance and California evil, it explores how a family's life is upended when their 15-year-old daughter is identified as the reincarnated prophet of a mysterious South American religion. But is she their messiah, or a pawn in a darker conspiracy?

Crazy, right?

Last we heard Friedman was working on a pretty bad ass robot show, for NBC with Homeland's producer (which is an excellent team up). Let's hope at least one of these projects gets a green light.
