ABC is teaming up with Lionsgate to adapt The Lincoln Lawyer feature into a drama series.

The Lincoln Lawyer screenwriter John Romano and Michael Connelly, the novelist who created the property adapted to film, will co-write the pilot script.

The film starred Matthew McConaughey as a criminal defense attorney who does business from the back of a chauffeured Town Car.

Protagonist Michael "Mickey" Haller is a character in five different novels by Michael Connelly, presumably giving producers a lot more material to mine.
