The Good Wife alumna Archie Panjabi
is returning to the legal drama genre as the star and producer of Adversaries, from Blindspot
creator/executive producer Martin Gero
and executive producer Alex Berger
. In a competitive situation, the project, from Warner Bros. TV and Gero’s Quinn’s House, has landed at NBC
with a put pilot commitment.
Written by Berger, Adversaries is described as a humorous, aspirational legal drama that argues the path to healing a polarized nation is through listening and empathy. It stars Panjabi as a successful La attorney who leaves her comfortable, coastal bubble to practice law in America’s heartland, her home state of Wisconsin. She’s forced to confront preconceived stereotypes and realize there’s more that unites us than divides us.
Berger and Gero, both under overall deals at Wbtv
, executive produce. Panjabi is a producer.
Adversaries also marks Panjabi’s return to NBC.
