Mark Wahlberg and his frequent collaborator Stephen Levinson, as well as writer Paul Davies, have nabbed a script order for a high-powered Beverly Hills law firm drama at NBC, continuing the peacock's buying spree, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
The show was described as featuring the firm's attorneys negotiating their relationships with each other as they litigate their cases. Boring!
Davies will pen the project, with Levinson and Wahlberg serving as executive producers.
The producing duo has worked together in the past on shows such as HBO's Entourage, Boardwalk Empire, How to Make It in America and In Treatment. They also produced a failed Rob Riggle comedy, Home Game, that didn't make it at CBS in 2011.
Davies has worked with NBC is the past, in a failed 2011 comedy about twins separated at birth.
I understand the concept is vague right now, but this show does nothing for me. Yesterday we reported on NBC's gothic New Orleans show, as well as the intriguing henchman concept they are working on. Those seem outside the box and fresh. This seems like a rehash of what has been done before. I'd argue that Wahlberg and Levinson have only had one real "hit," to their credit, Entourage, and even that show was all over the place and poorly, in my opinion, done.
Am I off the mark? Does this sound appealing to you?
