Production to Begin on Adaptation of John Grisham's The Firm for Television

The Firm by John Grisham
More information about the book

Entertainment One and Sony Pictures Television have agreed to co-produce a television series based on characters introduced in The Firm, the 1991 legal thriller by John Grisham. The book was previously adapted for the 1993 film of the same title, starring Tom Cruise.

The storyline reportedly takes place 10 years after the events in the book, as attorney Mitchell McDeere and his family emerge from the witness protection program. Grisham will co-executive produce.

An international distribution deal is already in place. Though CBS was originally part of the development team, NBC is now considered the front-runner to air The Firm in the US. Production is expected to begin on the 22-episode series this summer in Canada.
