ABC has given a put pilot commitment to A+E Studios new crime drama, Murder Town, starring Jada Pinket Smith.
Written by veteran showrunner Barry Schindel (Intelligence, Castle) based on an original script by Rob Fresco, Murder Town centers on a beautiful and complicated prosecutor (Pinkett Smith) who makes history as Wilmington, Delaware’s, first African American District Attorney. She finds herself confronted by old loyalties and loves, a shocking revelation about her murdered husband and a polarizing, racially-charged case that threatens to burn her and her city to the ground.
Schindel and Pinkett Smith executive produce alongside Miguel Melendez for Overbrook Entertainment and A+E Studios.
