Exclusive: Law & Order alum Barry Schindel is back on the legal beat with Shadow Counsel, a drama for USA Network. Schindel is writing/executive producing and David Semel is directing/executive producing the project, from Universal Cable Prods. It centers on a former Army lawyer who, in order to crack an ongoing investigation, is recruited reluctantly by the FBI as a Shadow Counsel — a “secret” lawyer who operates in the shadows, completely off the record to circumvent existing roadblocks (hired attorneys, interrogators, etc) in classified cases. A former trial attorney for the New York City Legal Aid Society, Schindel segued to writing/producing and served as co-chairman of Gotham-based Kardana Films. He spent three years on Law & Order, rising to executive producer/showrunner. CAA-repped Schindel has done a couple of legal drama pilots, including NBC’s adaptation of Rex Is Not Your Lawyer, which also was directed by Semel. Wme-repped »
