Doubt, from Tony Phelan and Joan Rater (Grey’s Anatomy, Madam Secretary), will focus on Sadie, a yet-to-be-cast defense lawyer at a boutique firm who “shockingly gets romantically involved with one of her clients — who may or may not be guilty of a brutal crime.”

Sarah Timberman and Carl Beverly (Elementary, Justified, Hindsight) also will serve as EPs on the potential series.

Hill’s character, Albert, is Sadie’s law partner and good friend who teams up with her to represent a member of an elite New York family.

Also joining the cast: Kobi Libii (Alpha House), who’ll portray Nick, an ambitious recent law-school grad dying to work with Sadie & Co.

Hill and Libii join the previously cast Laverne Cox (Orange Is the New Black).

    Did you hear about pluto? Messed up right?

    I have a feeling this will be the show taking over “The Good Wife” Sunday 9 pm spot following Madame Secretary. I wonder if Good Wife will only be 13 episodes final season…since the show doesn’t really mesh well with other CBS shows…

    They really need to find a good lead for this because the plot sounds boring.

    A Dule Hill sighting! Anyone know whatever happened to James Roday? I know that he wrote, directed, and starred in a movie, but it has not been able to get a distribution deal.

    congrats to see him back. Hope this show will take off. I will give it ago.
