Although most of the ABC summer schedule is filled with unscripted fare, the network does run some scripted summer series for the year-round drama audience. The latest entry in that category is the Reef Break TV show. Does the first season of this new summertime series have what the warm-weather audience craves? Will Reef Break be cancelled or renewed for season two? Stay tuned. *Status update below.
An ABC drama, Reef Break stars Poppy Montgomery, Ray Stevenson, Desmond Chiam, Melissa Bonne, and Tamala Shelton. The series centers on Cat Chambers (Montgomery), a former thief. These days, she works as the fixer for the governor of a beautiful Pacific Island paradise — “The Reef.” Thanks to her checkered past, Cat has a deep understanding of criminals and the crimes they commit. As a real risk-taker, she runs toward adventure, not from it.
