Fox TV and Gore Verbinski to Lay Down Some Magical Law
After losing its flagship series "24" and not seeing its newer offerings (aside from "Glee") garner especially strong ratings, Fox TV is looking around for something that will attract more viewers. What have they found? A supernatural twist on the cop/legal genre entitled "Magical Law" helmed by Pirates of the Caribbean director Gore Verbinski and written by Pirates scribe Terry Rossio.
According to Deadline Hollywood "Magical Law" is set in a world where the existence of supernatural beings is commonplace and follows the specialized cops and lawyers who face the unique challenges of prosecuting otherworldly crimes.
20th Century Fox TV and Verbinski's Blind Wink Prods. are producing "Magical Law", which has received a script commitment with penalty from the network. Verbinski (pictured) and Rossio are executive producing with veteran TV writer-producer Jeff Rake, who is supervising the writing, and Blind Wink's Jonathan Krauss. Verbinski could possibly direct if it goes to pilot.
