CBS has handed out a script commitment for an untitled drama pilot inspired by the life of the famed feminist attorney Gloria Allred.
Both Allred and Deborah Schoeneman (“Girls,” “The Newsroom”) will executive produce the untitled fictional drama about a fearless, outspoken lawyer who takes on the toughest civil rights cases and is a master at using the media in order to get justice.
Schoeneman will pen the script while Peter Principato and Paul Young will also serve as executive producers.
Allred has represented a number of clients in high-profile cases over the years including Nicole Brown Simpson’s family during the O.J. Simpson murder trial, one of the children who accused Michael Jackson of sex abuse, and the family of a murdered transgender teen. She’s currently representing at least twenty women who have accused Bill Cosby of sexual assault, harassment and/or sexual misconduct.
