With their Nashville pilot Outlaw Country heating up for a series pickup at FX, Josh Goldin and Rachel Abramowitz have sold a second drama project to NBC. The legal drama, titled Major Crimes, hails from Sony Pictures TV and producer Michael London (Milk), who is executive producing through his Groundswell Prods. Described as “ER in the LA prosecutor’s office,” Major Crimes is set in the world of young ADAs in a Los Angeles downtown court building. Moving at a bullet pace, the show focuses on an ensemble cast of massively overworked ADAs falling in love, battling their own demons and ambitions, while seeking out justice on the run. Goldin and Abramowitz are co-writing/executive producing the project, which came out of the extensive research the two did in the court offices in downtown LA. Major Crimes joins two other recently announced Groundswell series projects: A Visit From The Goon Squad at HBO and Magicians at Fox through 20th TV. Abramowitz and Goldin, who previously ventured into the legal genre with the Lifetime movie One Angry Juror, are with CAA & Media Talent; London is with CAA.
