ABC has just hired comedy writer-producer David Hemingson to produce a legal based one-hour drama for the channel. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the pilot will be put into production soon.
The show will revolve around a diverse group of hard-living, hard-working young associates at a high-profile law firm and the eccentric, aggressive and ambitious partners that dominate and complicate their lives. The show is being produced by 20th Century Fox.
The show is based on a lot of different people Hemingson has met in various legal circles while working around town. He stated, "We were a ragtag family of 25-year-olds in the dream capital of the world, finding and reinventing ourselves and dealing with the huge personalities of our clients and our bosses."
