According to Deadline, the Little Fires Everywhere and Mighty Ducks actor will both executive produce and play the lead role in Dr Odyssey on US network ABC, which received a straight-to-series order.

It's said to be a medical procedural taking place on a cruise ship, with Jackson's character using his charms to wrap people around his finger.
