Rod Lurie's (Commander in Chief) 2004 pilot Capital City is getting a second chance at the CW, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The network has closed a deal with Touchstone TV to redevelop the project, which originally was developed for ABC.
Lurie is writing and executive producing through his Touchstone TV-based Battle Plan Productions. He also is attached to direct if the project is picked up to pilot.
Capital City is an ensemble drama that follows a young woman's journey through the congressional landscape. Leslie Bibb starred in the original two-hour pilot, whose star-studded cast included Peter Fonda, David Paymer, Tom Berenger and Mary Steenburgen.
