MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - Memphis is at the center of a new legal drama that could end up on the peacock network.

NBC ordered a pilot in January set in the Bluff City. Written by Dean Georgaris, “Bluff City Law” (working title) follows a father-daughter law practice specializing in landmark civil rights cases.

Per the Hollywood Reporter, the potential series features attorneys Elijah Strait and his daughter, Sydney Keller, as they take on the toughest of cases while navigating their complicated relationship.
