If it’s supernatural/superhero series you’re into, ABC Family picked up a new show that may interest you. Based on a series of books, this new show follows a girl with heightened abilities.

ABC Family announced that they’ve picked up The Nine Lives of Chloe King. The drama series is based on a series of books and follows Chloe, a girl who learns she has special abilities and is part of an ancient race that’s been hunted by assassins. The Gates' Skyler Samuels has been cast to play the title role.

Another supernatural-themed drama series finds a home on TV. While I’m sure some are growing tired of the super-genre, I suspect this one will find an audience, especially if these books are popular with the kids.

Below is ABC Family’s synopsis for the series, which is set to premiere sometime later this year.

In the one-hour scripted drama The Nine Lives of Chloe King, Chloe King is looking forward to celebrating her birthday with her friends and single mother, just like every other year…that is until she starts developing heightened abilities and discovers she’s being pursued by a mysterious figure. Chloe soon learns she’s part of an ancient race which has been hunted by human assassins for millennia — and that she may be their only hope for ultimate survival.

The Nine Lives of Chloe King will be executive-produced by Dan Berendsen (Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam, Sabrina the Teenage Witch, Hannah Montana: The Movie) and John Ziffren (Melissa & Joey, Make It or Break It) with Alloy Entertainment’s Leslie Morgenstein (Pretty Little Liars, Gossip Girl, The Vampire Diaries) and Gina Girolamo.

The drama is based on the book series The Nine Lives of Chloe King by Celia Thomson. The series will star Skyler Samuels (The Gates) as Chloe King; Amy Pietz (The Office, Caroline in the City) as Meredith King; Grey Damon (True Blood, Friday Night Lights) as Brian; newcomer Grace Phipps as Amy; Benjamin Stone (10 Things I Hate About You) as Alek; Alyssa Diaz (Southland) as Jasmine; and Ki Hong Lee (The Secret Life of the American Teenager) as Paul.
