The drama was based on the BBC BAFTA-award winning series from Peter Moffat. It was to be adapted for HBO by Steven Zaillian and Richard Price. Oscar-winning writer Zaillian directed and co-penned the pilot with Richard Price.

The original series, set in New York City, followed a person through the justice system as they went on trial for murder. According to the report, HBO's reboot was to "revolve around the story arc, which tracked Ben Whishaw as Ben, a guy who after a night of partying with a stranger, wakes up to find her stabbed to death and is charged with her murder."

Gandolfini starred as Jack Stone, described as "a downtrodden jailhouse attorney who frequents police stations for clients. There, he finds a client: Naz, an American-born Pakistani." Rizwan Ahmed took on the role of Naz in the pilot, which will also featured Bill Camp as Box, Peyman Moadi as Salim Kahn and Poorna Jagannathan as Safar Kahn, Naz's parents.

Gandolfini performed in a 1992 Broadway production of On the Waterfront. He returned to the stage in 2009, appearing in Broadway's God of Carnage with Marcia Gay Harden,Hope Davis and Jeff Daniels.
