*Former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder is teaming with producer Jerry Bruckheimer for a legal drama series loosely inspired by his life story and work, according to Deadline.
Titled “Main Justice,” the project is anchored at CBS with a script from Sascha Penn (“Survivor’s Remorse”). Penn, Holder and Bruckheimer will also executive produce.
Centered around the U.S. Attorney General, the show takes viewers into the tumultuous world of the 5th floor of the Department of Justice where he takes on the biggest legal and investigative cases in the country all while being the youngest person to ever hold such an esteemed position.
Holder was the 82nd Attorney General of the United States. Appointed by President Barack Obama, Holder served for six years, from 2009 to 2015 as the first African American to hold the position. He has since returned to private practice.
Executive producing alongside Holder, Penn and Bruckheimer are Jerry Bruckheimer TV’s Jonathan Littman and KristieAnne Reed for CBS TV Studios.
The project falls under the overall deal Jerry Bruckheimer TV inked with CBS TV Studios in July.
