Legal dramas may be poised for a big comeback at NBC.
A day after formally putting spinoff Chicago Law into development, the network has handed out pilot orders to legal soap Miranda's Rights, as well as supernatural drama Midnight, Texas.
Katie Lovejoy (The Selection) will pen the script and executive produce with John Glenn (Eagle Eye) for Universal Television. Her TV credits include NBC's Dracula and she's currently adapting best-seller The Selection as a feature for Warner Bros. (Selection was previously twice adapted for TV at The CW but did not move forward.) She is repped by CAA and Myman Greenspan. Glenn is repped by WME and manager Brian Lutz.
