Viola Davis Develops New Drama For ABC: You Will Not Believe What It’s About!

Now that she’s taught us how to get away with murder, star Viola Davis is on to bigger and better things – like developing her next project where she plays another powerful female lawyer.

Deadline.com reports, Davis and her producing partner Julius Tennon partnered with famed producer Debra Martin Chase (“Sparkle”) for “Conviction,” a legal drama inspired by the life of Kym Worthy, the chief prosecutor of Wayne County, MI, known as the toughest woman in Detroit.

Davis has proven that she is built for roles that portray tough women. She’s played many characters like “Murder”‘s Annalise Keating who is sassy, strong, powerful and untouchable. She is definitely someone you’d want to think twice before messing with.  If you haven’t watched “How to Get Away with Murder,” Davis plays a relentless character who is not to be underestimated.

Deadline.com gives us a brief insight on prosecutor Kym Worthy, who became the second African-American to serve as a county prosecutor in Michigan when she was appointed as chief prosecutor of Wayne County in 2004. She is known for a number of high-profile cases, like filing charges against Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick, and her campaign to clear a massive backlog of 11,000 unprocessed rape test kits in Detroit.

The script is being written by Jason Wilborn (“Damages”), with Jeff Melvoin (“Army Wives”) on board as showrunner.

Davis and Tennon are executive producing through their JuVee Productions, and Martin Chase through her Martin Chase Prods. ABC Studios, where Martin Chase Prods. has an overall deal, is the studio.

Also executive producing are Kim Swann and Leah Keith who brought Worthy’s story to Hollywood, and Melvoin, while Wilborn serves as co-executive producer and Martin Chase Prods.’ Charles Pugliese as producer. Worthy will serve as a consultant.

In addition to “Conviction,” Swann is developing several projects with Worthy as her producing partner. Keith is adapting her novel “A Rented Life” into a feature. At ABC and ABC Studios, Martin Chase Prods. also has a limited series in development based on the book “Catherine The Great” by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Robert Massie with a script by Pulitzer Prize-winning writer Michael Cristofer (“Gia”).

What are your thoughts about the new show “Conviction?”  We know that the level of caliber that Davis brings to TV is nothing short of excellent.  But will she be able to portray a different character?  Or will Kym Worthy be just another Annalise Keating?

    Hey, I think your blog might be having browser compatibility issues.

    When I look at your blog in Safari, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer,
    it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up!

    Other then that, terrific blog!
