“ CBS has a script deal in place for a drama series, inspired by the life of Gloria Allred,” reports Variety.

The series is the brainchild of Deborah Schoeneman, who told Variety, “When I was finished working on the last season of ‘The Newsroom,’ I was trying to figure out what kind of show I wanted to develop. Gloria Allred was in the center of the stories in the news that most interested me, particularly about women seeking justice. I was thrilled that she was receptive and excited about partnering with Paul Young and me on this project. She was a lot of fun to pitch with … I feel lucky to have the opportunity to work with Gloria Allred to create a dynamic, passionate and polarizing character based on her. Gloria’s an amazing storyteller with a deep well of perfect material for television.”

Allred herself will be one of the executive producers should the series get picked up, Variety says.

  1. I’m thinking the title will be something like, “Feeding My Ego” or “Are there TV cameras there? I’m On it!”
