LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - ABC has picked up a drama project from "Private Practice" star Taye Diggs.

"Match" centers on the ethically complex world of adoption. It will examine how families are made and broken as the protagonists -- a Los Angeles-based team of lawyers, doctors and caseworkers -- struggle to make dreams come true.

It comes from Cara Haycak, who wrote the young-adult novels "Red Palms" and "Living on Impulse," and Kiersten Van Horne, who wrote last season's "Pretty Little Mistakes" for NBC. Diggs will also serve as a producer.
