TV Comedy Star to Try Hand at Drama

Nov 3, 2009  •  Post A Comment

The star of a long-running sitcom is teaming up with Diane English (“Murphy Brown”) and Barry Levinson for an hourlong drama, in which he’ll play a defense attorney, Variety reports.

Jim Belushi of the ABC comedy “According to Jim” would star in the new drama, which hasn’t been shopped to the networks yet.

Belushi’s character would be based on lawyer and TV commentator Mickey Sherman, whose memoir was titled “How Can You Defend Those People?”
