ABC Lands Noah Hawley, Mark Gordon Drama
My Generation creator Noah Hawley has sold a drama project to ABC.
Courtroom 302, from ABC Studios, is billed as more than just another “case-of-the-week” show and offers an in-depth look at the dramas and personalities of the U.S. District Court of New York City.
Episodes of the project would take viewers on a compelling, often irreverent tour of some of the nation’s most important legal cases, from the holding cells through the heights of the judge’s chambers.
Grey’s Anatomy’s Mark Gordon is attached to executive produce the project, his second deal of the day with ABC and the latest in a long string this development season through the Mark Gordon Co.
Hawley will pen the script and executive produce alongside Gordon.
Hawley, repped by CAA and McKuin Frankel Whitehead, wrote, created and executive produced My Generation, the 2010 short-lived hourlong dramedy that ABC axed after two episodes. Gordon is repped by ICM.
