NBC Picks Up Jamie Foxx's 'Girl' That Could Star Selma Blair And Scot Armstrong's 'Life'

After lengthy negotiations, NBC has closed a deal for Jamie Foxx’s drama project Tommy’s Little Girl based on the trailer Foxx shot with Selma Blair, Paul Sorvino, Tony Sirico and James Russo.

Jorge Zamacona has been tapped to write the script and executive produce. (more…)
