The untitled David Elliot/Danny Strong legal drama pilot (also known at one point as Infamy), now officially named Proven Innocent, has been ordered to series at Fox.
The series stars Rachelle Lefevre, Russell Hornsby, Nikki M. James, Vincent Kartheiser, Riley Smith and Clare O’Connor.
It revolves around a legal team led by a fierce and fearless female lawyer (Lefevre) with a hunger for justice. They reopen investigations, putting their own lives in danger to exonerate the innocent that were “proven” guilty.
So far, it has earned the edge over the untitled Katie Holmes FBI drama project, giving Fox its first procedural in a while.
Strong is the co-creator of Empire.
