'Hill Street' Bochco creates new legal drama
The Turner cable channel has greenlit production on ten episodes of Raising The Bar, and plans to run it later this year.
The series, which stars NYPD Blue's Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Malcolm in the Middle's Jane Kaczmarek and ER's Gloria Reuben, follows the lives of young lawyers who were friends at law school but now work on opposing sides.
"Raising The Bar is the sort of smart, highly charged legal drama for which Steven Bochco is known and an ideal fit for our line-up," said Michael Wright, senior vice president in charge of Turner's content creation group for TNT, TBS and TCM. "Steven and the exceptional cast and crew he's assembled have put together an excellent drama, and we're proud to add another talent-rich, entertaining series to the TNT schedule."
