Jean Valjean becomes a lawyer in planned TV series inspired by 'Les Miserables'

Nellie Andreeva reports at Deadline.
"the contemporary take is a primetime soap about a brilliant lawyer running a legal exoneration program who fights to evade the consequences of his own unjust conviction many years before. He must navigate high society, continue his mission of saving innocent people, and manage his tumultuous family and romantic life — all while staying one step ahead of a ruthless U.S. Attorney who refuses to let the ghosts of the past die."
Let's hope screenwriter Graham Norris doesn't have any talk of "killing" ghosts. If anything, they should be looking for David Janssen's. (via Martha Neil at ABA Journal)
