NBC Developing THE DEVIL'S ADVOCATE as a TV Series
NBC and producers John Wells and Arnold Kopelson are set to develop a TV series based on the 1997 feature film The Devil’s Advocate. The network has committed to a pilot that will be written by Matt Venne (Bag Of Bones, The Exorcism Of Molly Harley).
The series will center on a public defender who joins a law firm that is run by the Devil himself. In the film, the young lawyer was played by Keanu Reeves, and Al Pachino played his boss. Don't expect them to reprise their roles in the series, of course NBC will recast them.
I thought the movie was really good, and I think a TV series based on it and the book it was adapted from has a lot of potential.
