Congrats to Emmy winner Archie Panjabi who will star in NBC’s untitled legal drama which has a put pilot order for the 2019-2020 season! From Variety:
Panjabi would star as a successful LA attorney who leaves her comfortable, coastal bubble to practice law in America’s heartland: her home state of Wisconsin. She’s forced to confront preconceived stereotypes and realize there’s more that unites us than divides us.
The one-hour project hails from Alex Berger, who will serve as writer and executive producer, with Martin Gero also executive producing. Panjabi will also be a producer on the series. Gero’s Quinn’s House banner will produce in association with Warner Bros. Television, where both Gero and Berger are under overall deals.
Panjabi is best known to American audiences for playing Kalinda Sharma on the critically-acclaimed CBS series “The Good Wife,” for which she won an Emmy in 2010. The role also keeps her in business with Gero and Berger, as both produce fellow NBC series “Blindspot,” on which Gero is also the showrunner.
