One is a former football phenomenon who became a jailhouse lawyer after he was wrongfully convicted of murdering his girlfriend. The other is a Yale Law graduate whose bright future went up in flames when her sex tape with a Supreme Court nominee leaked. Together, they represent the outcasts that society has already condemned." Mark Gordon and Nick Pepper will also executive produce via their ABC Studios-based The Mark Gordon Co. (Deadline.com)

Foley will pen the teleplay from a story conceived alongside Grunberg for the ABC Studios-based Shondland. The company's Shonda Rhimes and Betsy Beers will also executive produce. (Deadline.com)
