Josh Lucas, a star of "The Lincoln Lawyer," is in discussions to take the lead role on an NBC television series based on John Grisham’s best-selling novel "The Firm," according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The project picks up a decade after the movie version of "The Firm" left off, with its main character, Mitch McDeere, having left the Federal Witness Protection Program after helping to topple a Memphis law firm run by the mafia.

The project has been ordered straight to series and has been given a post-football spot on Sunday evenings, the article notes.
