FOX has given a put pilot commitment to a legal dramedy based on "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs."
Set up at ABC Studios and developed by Chris Brancato and Bert Salke with writers David Weissman and David Diamond, the tentatively titled "Georgia and the Seven Associates" will be directed in pilot form by Ken Kwapis ("The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants").
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the pilot would focus on young lawyer Georgia Burnett. Banished from a job at a top law firm by her evil stepmother, she takes a job at a small firm of seven quirky lawyers.
Yes, the associates will all have character traits similar to those held by Snow White's beloved dwarfs, insofar as at least one will be grump, another bashful and another sneezy. The trade paper promises that some of the cases would have fairy tale roots.
Writing credits for Weissman and Diamond include the upcoming "Old Dogs" and "When in Rome." Salke and Brancato have served as producers on shows ranging from "Boomtown" to "North Shore."Copyright © 2015, The Baltimore Sun
