'Veronica Mars' creator Rob Thomas will give a modern twist to the Victor Hugo classic story with the help from Graham Norris.

The classic story of "Les Miserables" is going to be turned into a television series. Deadline reports "Veronica Mars" creator Rob Thomas has collaborated with actor/writer Graham Norris to develop a drama inspired by Victor Hugo's classic novel. A project from Warner Bros TV and Rob Thomas Prods, it's snatched by FOX with script commitment plus penalty.

It's described as "a primetime soap about 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."

"Les Miserables" has been adapted into stage plays and movies everywhere around the world. The latest Hollywood big-screen adaptation came last year with Hugh Jackman and Anne Hathaway among the lead cast. It was nominated for Best Picture at the Academy Awards.

From another classic story Alexadre Dumas' "The Count Of Monte Cristo" born "Revenge" which becomes a hit on ABC. It introduces such strong characters like Emily Thorne and Victoria Greyson.

Thomas himself is currently busy making a "Veronica Mars" movie which is financed through a successful kickstarter campaign.
