Fox has given a script commitment to a drama starring the former star of CBS’s “Joan of Arcadia,” reports Deadline.com. The show is from "House" executive producer Katie Jacobs and "The Wire" co-creator Ed Burns, and stars Amber Tamblyn, who played the title role in the CBS show.
Tamblyn, who most recently appeared on “House,” will star as a young teacher working in a public school, the story says. The idea came from Jacobs, who pitched the idea to Tamblyn when the actress appeared on "House," the story says. The pair brought in Burns, who worked as a public teacher as well as a police detective in Baltimore before turning to writing.
Burns is attached to write and Jacobs to direct, the story says, with the project being produced by 20th Century Fox TV.
