ABC has bought the action-adventure project The Seven Wonders from prolific producer Mark Gordon, Deadline reports.

Based on the Jack West Jr. book series by Matthew Reilly, the show follows the titular archeologist and his team of four as they search the world for seven pieces of an ancient relic. The first season, to be adapted by Michael Seitzman, will be based on the first two books in the trilogy.

"They feel like big boyhood and girlhood adventure stories; they are really fun and remind me of all the movies in the genre I loved," said Seitzman, whose screenwriting credits include 2005's North Country and 2000's Here on Earth. "[They're] a mixture of history and historical truth and carefully drawn-out plausible fiction."
