ABC believes Kaitlin Olson has an excellent future as a private investigator.

The network announced Tuesday the addition of “High Potential,” a drama that follows Olson as a single mother with an unconventional knack for crime-solving. The “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” star plays the offbeat Morgan, who forms an unusual yet formidable partnership with a seasoned detective (Daniel Sunjata) by the book.

The drama, written by Drew Goddard (‘The Good Place’) is based on the popular French series ‘Haut Potential Intellectuel’.

ABC renewed Gina Rodriguez’s freshman sitcom “Not Dead Yet” for a second season, along with (as expected) the network’s top comedy “Roseanne” spin-off “The Conners” for a sixth season.

The timing of for “High Potential” — and new episodes of returning favorites — depends on the resolution of the Writers Guild of America’s ongoing strike, which began May 2, and if extended will delay the fall season.

“Home Economics,” which is vying for a fourth season, and “The Rookie: Feds,” starring Niecy Nash, remain on the bubble for the network, which must decide before June 30 whether to renew.
