Julia Brownell is switching gears from cults to grapes. “The Path” co-executive producer has scored a put pilot commitment from ABC for family drama “Eight Hundred Grapes,” Deadline reports. She’ll exec produce and pen the script.

An adaptation of Laura Dave’s 2015 novel “Eight Hundred Grapes: a Perfect Summer Escape to a Sun-drenched Vineyard,” the potential series centers on Georgia Ford, “who learned some important secrets growing up on her family’s Sonoma vineyard,” the source writes. “The secret number of grapes it takes to make a bottle of wine: eight hundred. The secret ingredient in her mother’s lasagna: chocolate. But just a month before her wedding, 30-year-old Georgia discovers her fiancé has been keeping a secret so explosive that it will change their lives forever. Georgia does what she’s always done: She returns to the family vineyard, expecting the comfort of her long-married parents and her brothers and everything familiar. But it turns out her fiancé is not the only one who’s been keeping secrets.”

Phillip Noyce (“Roots,” “The Giver”) is directing the pilot.

Brownell most recently worked on Hulu’s “The Path,” a drama about a fictional religion — or cult, depending on who you ask — known as Meyerism and its followers. The show’s second season concluded in April, and Hulu has confirmed it will be returning for a third. Her other credits include “Parenthood,” “Smash,” and “Hung.”

Must Watch Thrilling Short Film The Secret Number

Not all short films have to have impressive special effects to make them great. I love coming across short films, and we've featured a few that ended up getting picked up by studios. Some have been good, others have been mediocre. I still think there's a belief out there that special effects make a story better, I don't believe that. What makes a film great is a solid story and script. Sure, special effects give us some eye candy, but it's pointless if the story is shallow.

Here's an awesome live-action short film called The Secret Number with a solid story that doesn't rely on special effects. It was created over a period of two years by a team of young filmmakers from the Savannah College of Art and Design. It was directed by Colin Levy, and it's based on the short story by Igor Teper. It's a really refreshing
