In their first stab at development since creating The Good Wife, Robert and Michelle King have set up Girls With Guns, a drama project at Showtime that will be produced by the companies behind The Good Wife, CBS TV Studios and Scott Free Prods. It was one of the projects in the works at Scott Free when one of the company principles, Tony Scott, died tragically 10 days ago. Another one is a drama from Joan Of Arcadia creator Barbara Hall, which has received a script commitment from CBS. Scott’s brother and producing partner, Ridley Scott, will executive both projects with Scott Free’s David Zucker.
Written and executive produced by the Kings, Girls With Guns is a drama about two Los Angeles sisters whose family moves to the one place in the world where women are drafted into the military – Israel. This marks the first project for Paradigm-repped Robert and Michelle King under their new overall deal with CBS TV Studios.
The untitled Barbara Hall project, also from CBS TV Studios, revolves around three generations of empowered women who all live together under one roof. Hall is writing and executive producing.
