Adaptation of The Firm by John Grisham May Become Network Series

The Firm by John Grisham
More information about the book

Deadline: Hollywood is reporting that a pilot script adapted from John Grisham's 1991 legal thriller The Firm is being shopped to the networks. Lukas Reiter, who wrote the screenplay, developed the project years ago for CBS, but no pilot was ever produced. Grisham is reported to be involved in this new project, and will co-executive produce with Reiter.

A theatrical adaptation of The Firm was released in 1993, starring Tom Cruise and directed by Sydney Pollack.

About The Firm (from the publisher): At the top of his class at Harvard Law, he had his choice of the best in America. He made a deadly mistake.

When Mitch McDeere signed on with Bendini, Lambert & Locke of Memphis, he thought he and his beautiful wife, Abby, were on their way. The firm leased him a BMW, paid off his school loans, arranged a mortgage and hired him a decorator. Mitch McDeere should have remembered what his brother Ray -- doing fifteen years in a Tennessee jail -- already knew. You never get nothing for nothing. Now the FBI has the lowdown on Mitch's firm and needs his help. Mitch is caught between a rock and a hard place, with no choice -- if he wants to live.
