It appears yet another revival for a dormant sequel is in the works.
This time it is the Emmy-winning Steven Bochco series LA Law. According to Deadline, ABC is developing a new incarnation of the series, with the actor who hasn’t aged a day since it aired — Blair Underwood. He is set to reprise his role as attorney Jonathan Rollins and executive produce.
This new version is written and executive produced by Arrow and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow co-creator/executive producer Marc Guggenheim and Arrow/Legends writer Ubah Mohamed, and directed/executive produced by Emmy winner Anthony Hemingway. In it, the venerable law firm of McKenzie Brackman reinvents itself as a litigation firm specializing in only the most high-profile, boundary-pushing and incendiary cases.
Underwood reprises his role as Rollins, who has gone from idealistic to more conservative as he clashes with millennial JJ Freeman to decide the best path forward for the firm to effect political and legal change.
The original series ran for eight seasons on NBC, from September 15, 1986 to May 19, 1994. Notable actors that appeared on the show were: Don Cheadle, Jeffrey Tambor, Kathy Bates, David Schwimmer, Jay O. Sanders, James Avery, Gates McFadden, Bryan Cranston, CCH Pounder, Richard Schiff, Carrie-Anne Moss, William H. Macy, Stephen Root, Christian Slater, Steve Buscemi, and Lucy Liu.
