O.J. Simpson Prosecutor Marcia Clark Lands TV Deal
TV| | By Sara Wilkins
O.J. Simpson prosecutor Marcia Clark has inked a deal to create a TV legal drama inspired by her career.
Clark, who famously attempted to put the embattled athlete behind bars for the alleged murder of his wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her best friend Ron Goldman 20 years ago, has scored a pilot agreement for an as-yet-untitled TV series with bosses at NBC.
The potential program will be based on her novel Blood Defense, and centers on a Los Angeles criminal defense attorney whose world is turned upside down when she must represent a police detective in a high-profile homicide case.
Clark will co-write the pilot with Sara Fain and Elizabeth Craft, and the trio will also executive produce the project.
The lawyer-turned-author was thrown back into the spotlight against this year following the premiere of the acclaimed TV series The People v. OJ Simpson: American Crime Story.
Sarah Paulson garnered an Emmy nomination for her portrayal of Clark in the drama.
