Parker will play one of the two leads in the project, which chronicles Philadelphia Daily News reporters Wendy Ruderman and Barbara Laker’s efforts to uncover one of the biggest police corruption scandals in Philadelphia’s history.

Sidney Kimmel Entertainment will produce alongside Anonymous Content (True Detective). The project won’t be shopped to networks until the rest of the cast is lined up, according to Deadline.

    “Busted”…what a fitting title for a Sarah Jessica Parker project.

    Don’t know who should play her partner but Paul Guilfoyle needs to be cast in a role. After playing good cop Jim Brass, maybe he needs a turn as a bad cop?

    Afraid I’m over SJP – no plans to watch a new series with her in a starring role.

    No thanks, I’ll be watching How To Get Away With Murder (also set in Philadelphia, the City of Brotherly Love).
