Dick Wolf & David Hudgins To Adapt British Series ‘Injustice’ For NBC – by Nellie Andreeva

Law & Ordermastermind Dick Wolf is returning to the courtroom with Injustice, a U.S. version of a British format, which will be written by former Friday Night Lights executive producer David Hudgins.

The project, from Universal TV and studio-based Wolf Films, is described as an intricate legal drama/psychological thriller about a devoted criminal defense attorney with a dark past buried deep in his psyche and heart, who juggles his complicated family situation with his emotionally conflicted feelings about representing heinous criminals. The original, created by Anthony Horowitz, ran as a five-episode limited series on ITV1 in summer 2011. It starred James Purefoy as the barrister at the center of the story. (See the trailer below.) Hudgins is executive producing the NBC version with Wolf Films’ Wolf, Danielle Gelber and Peter Jankowski. Horowitz and Jill Green, producer of the original series, will serve as producers.
