Fox Orders Series based on the Legal Thriller Pleading Guilty by Scott Turow

Pleading Guilty by Scott Turow
More information about the book

In still more television news, The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that Fox has ordered a series based on the legal thriller Pleading Guilty by Scott Turow. Jon Avnet (Righteous Kill, The Starter Wife) will direct and produce the pilot, written by Burn Notice executive producer Jason Tracey.

Pleading Guilty (also the series title) will center on Mack Malloy, an ex-cop-turned-attorney who works as a partner at a powerful Chicago law firm. The book was the third in Turow's series set in fictional Kindle County (but which everyone knew was a thin disguise for Chicago's Cook County).

About the book: The star litigator from a top-notch law firm has gone missing, along with $5.6 million from a class-action settlement, and "Mack" Malloy, an ex-cop and partner-on-the-wane, must find both.
