Send laywers, guns, and money. The Underlings TV show project has received a script commitment plus penalty from FOX. Deadline reports the legal dramedy comes from Leila Gerstein and Kapital Entertainment. Gerstein created Hart of Dixie, starring Rachel Bilson, which was cancelled after four seasons on The CW.
According to the report, “The Underlings is set at a corporate law firm fueled by greed where a group of beleaguered, hapless assistants, led by a plucky paralegal, resolves to right the wrongs of their evil bosses and clients.” Gerstein is writing and will also executive produce, with Kapital’s Aaron Kaplan and Dana Honor.
