Morena Baccarin (Gotham) is set to star in an upcoming NBC legal drama pilot.
Ken Sanzel (Numbers) will write the project which follows Morena (Baccarin) a former police officer-turned-high-powered attorney who navigates the ever-changing landscape of New York City politics, law enforcement and the justice system, all while juggling a complicated personal life. Morena works for a law firm that defends New York police officers in a wide range of cases.
If this project goes to series Baccarin will be allowed to reduce her role on Gotham to recurring so she can appear on both shows. Baccarin has been a regular on the DC inspired show since Season 2.
