Yahoo.com reports that NBC has ordered a new legal drama pilot which will be based on Jo Nesbo's novel I AM VICTOR. According to the report, the series will tell the story of "a high-powered divorce attorney with a unique view of relationships."
Katie Jacobs (House M.D.) is set to executive produce the project written by Mark Goffman. Meghan Lyvers, Daniel Rappaport and Jo Nesbo will also executive-produce.
Nesbo is a top-selling crime fiction author known throughout Europe. He is best known for his series of novels featuring detective Harry Hole including The Snowman, currently in production from Working Title which has both Martin Scorsese and screenwriter Matthew Michael Carnahan attached. His latest novel, The Son, is now in the hands of Warner Bros. after a fierce bidding war late last year.
