FOX has given a put-pilot commitment to a new Civil Rights legal drama from Danny Strong and Jessica Sharzer. Deadline reports, “…the untitled project centers on a team of civil rights lawyers who take on the most newsworthy cases of our time, balancing the high stress of their jobs with sex, drugs and assorted other vices.”
Strong got his start on Saved By the Bell: The New Class. As an actor, he really broke out as Jonathan Levinson, on Buffy the Vampire Slayer. A talented writer too, Strong created Empire with Lee Daniels. He also wrote Daniels’ film, The Butler, as well as the HBO movie, Game Change.
The Civil Rights drama pilot hails from 20th Century Fox.
