Let it be known that ABC officially has “Scruples” — and Natalie Portman is thrown in with the deal.
The network has picked up a one-hour drama based on the 1978 Judith Krantz novel “Scruples.” Portman is attached to executive-produce, along with Tony Krantz and Annette Savitch.
The project, which comes via Flame Ventures LLC and Warner Bros. Television, is billed as a “sexy soap set in the late 1970s” that “follows a socialite who, following the death of her husband, seeks to open a fashion forward boutique in the heart of Beverly Hills.”

The Krantz novel spawned both a sequel, “Scruples Two,” and a 1980 miniseries starring Lindsay Wagner, Barry Bostwick, Kim Cattrall and Connie Stevens.
Every year, IMDB does a list that shows us who the most searched star is, this year, Natalie tops the list, bumping Johnny Depp off. She’s followed by her Black Swan co-star, Mila Kunis.
The top-10 of IMDB’s list are:
Seems Natalie will be directed by Alan Taylor, who directs Game Of Thrones, for her role in the sequel to Thor.
Daniel Minahan, another director who has been feeding his tummy by way of “Game of Thrones” directing assignments, was believed to be Taylor’s closest competition for the job.
Don Payne is writing the script for the film, which will again star Chris Hemsworth and Natalie Portman, but he’ll be assisted by an unnamed fellow writer.
