In A+E Studios’ first sale for an outside network, the studio has set up drama Murder Town, starring and executive produced by Jada Pinkett Smith, at ABC with a put pilot commitment.
Written by veteran showrunner Barry Schindel(Intelligence, Castle) based on an original script by Rob Fresco, Murder Town centers on a beautiful and complicated prosecutor (Pinkett Smith) who makes history as Wilmington, Delaware’s, first African American District Attorney. She finds herself confronted by old loyalties and loves, a shocking revelation about her murdered husband and a polarizing, racially-charged case that threatens to burn her and her city to the ground.
