Sex And The City and White Collar alum Willie Garson is set to co-star in and co-executive produce an hourlong drama that has been set up at NBC.
The untitled project (aka The Advocate), from Warner Bros TV, will be written by Alyson Feltes (Netflix’s upcoming Ozark) based on a story by Garson. It centers on an idealistic young former foster child who now works as a paralegal while advocating for those in need from all walks of life. Garson’s character is still being fleshed out. Feltes executive produces.
Garson, best known for his roles as Mozzie on the USA drama White Collar and as Stanford Blatch on the HBO comedy Sex And The City, continues to recur on CBS’ Hawaii Five-0. His upcoming features include The Polka King and Feed. Garson is repped by Paradigm, managers Gladys Gonzalez and John Carrabino, and attorney Wendy Heller.
This marks Feltes’ return to NBC where she served as a writer/consulting producer on another legal drama series, the network’s adaptation of John Grisham’s The Firm. She is repped by CAA.
