‘Lincoln Lawyer’ Series in Development at CBS

CBS has issued a series production commitment for “The Lincoln Lawyer,” with Kelley in position to write and executive produce.

Based on the series of novels by Michael Connelly it will center around Mickey Haller, an idealist who runs his law practice out of the back of his Lincoln Town Car taking on cases big and small across the expansive city of Los Angeles.

“The Lincoln Lawyer” novel was adapted for the big screen in 2011 with Matthew McConaughey playing the lawyer in question. The film was a box office hit and also starred Marisa Tomei in the role of his ex-wife.

There is yet no word on who will be playing the criminal defense attorney in this new series or when it will air.
