“They found a way to take an iconic series and bring it to 2016 Los Angeles,” infusing some “beloved pieces” from the original show into a contemporary legal drama, Fox TV Group chairman Gary Newman told Deadline at TCA. “It is an interesting blend of old and new.”
I hear the new incarnation, written by Bochco and Finkelstein, revolves around new characters, young lawyers, and is expected to also feature several characters from the original series as bosses. Does the show have an Upstairs, Downstairs” dynamic? “That’s an interesting way to put it,” Newman said.
The publication reports that the project will be taken to FOX as well as other networks.
