AMC has McKinnon in court with legal drama


AMC is developing a legal drama with actor-writer-producer Ray McKinnon that would star "The Shield's" Walton Goggins.

McKinnon created and wrote the AMC project, titled "Rectify"; he also will serve as exec producer with Mark Johnson. Goggins and Stephen Kay are co-exec producers.

"Ray McKinnon's script beautifully weaves together the legal drama surrounding a wrongful conviction into a great character-driven family drama and in that sense, it is unique," said Christina Wayne, senior vp scripted series and miniseries at AMC.

McKinnon is repped by attorney Bill Skrzyniarz. Goggins is with APA and manager Darris Hatch. (partialdiff)
