FOX Nabs Modern Adaptation of 'Les Miserables' From 'Veronica Mars' Creator


Rob Thomas teams up with Graham Norris for the drama inspired by Victor Hugo's novel which has been acquired by the network with script commitment plus penalty.

"Les Miserables" inspires yet another work. Deadline reports that "Veronica Mars" creator Rob Thomas is developing a contemporary take on the Victor Hugo novel which has now landed at FOX with script commitment plus penalty.

Actor-writer Graham Norris pens the script of the drama which revolves around "a brilliant lawyer running a legal exoneration program who fights to evade the consequences of his own unjust conviction many years before. He must navigate high society, continue his mission of saving innocent people, and manage his tumultuous family and romantic life - all while staying one step ahead of a ruthless U.S. Attorney who refuses to let the ghosts of the past die."

Thomas, who has wrapped up the principal photography for "Veronica Mars" movie, will executive produce the new TV project with frequent collaborators Danielle Stokdyk and Dan Etheridge. Norris will be a supervising producer.

Most recently, "Les Miserables" was brought to the big screen through the Tom Hooper-directed musical movie, which earned multiple Oscar nominations. The 2012 film managed to win three Academy Awards, including the Best Supporting Actress for Anne Hathaway.
