NBC Developing Legal Comedy Series from GLEE Co-Creator
Deadline reports that NBC is developing the half-hour comedy DANNI LOWINSKI, based on the 2010 German TV series. The project hails from GLEE and SCREAM QUEENS co-creator Ian Brennan, Tariq Jalil's Intrigue Entertainment and 20th Century FOX TV.
Brennan will pen the script and serve as showrunner on the project which follows "a working-class woman who is whip-smart, mouthy and undeniably herself. But when she's rejected by every straight-laced traditional law firm in Milwaukee, she decides to change the world from her mall-kiosk law practice, one dollar-a-minute case at a time."
The original German legal dramedy starred comedy actress Annette Frier. Debuting in 2010, the show was an instant hit and ran for five seasons, garnering multiple awards along the way.
