Gandolfini will star in the New York-set crime drama, based on Peter Moffat's 2008 BBC series of the same name. Steven Zaillian ("Schindler's List") and Richard Price ("The Color of Money") are adapting the series for HBO, which has given "Criminal Justice" a pilot order, THR reports.
The original series followed a person on trial for murder, with each of its two five-episode seasons starring a new cast. HBO's adaptation will revolve around a guy who -- after a night of partying with a stranger -- wakes up to find her stabbed to death and is charged with her murder.
