The series is titled Reef Break and has landed a straight-to-series order at ABC and is scheduled to debut next summer.

Montgomery previously starred in the likes of Without a Trace and Unforgettable. 

Meanwhile, another reboot is in the works, and this time, Bewitched is the show that could be making a comeback. 

Per Deadline, the new version comes from Kenya Barris, and will focus on a black single mother who marries a slacker named Darren. 

The series has been given a pilot order, and more details will likely be announced in the coming months. 

ABC was the home of the original series which aired from 1964 to 1972. A reboot was in the works at NBC in 2014, but the project fizzled out.
