Dave Hemingson and ABC are re-teaming with 20th TV for a pilot order for an hourlong legal project.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Hemingson recently penned ABC/20th TV's untitled legal dramedy pilot, an ensemble about a law school grad (Matt Long) from a blue-collar background who joins a Los Angeles boutique law firm. The pilot had solid buzz but missed the cut for a series pickup in August.
Still, the network is said to have liked Hemingson's writing, the law firm setting and some of the actors, including Long.
It is understood that the new project would be more dramatic and emotional in tone. It isn't clear whether any cast members of this year's pilot will stay on for the new one.
