Exhibit A - CBS Developing Legal Drama About a Korean-American Lawyer



CBS could be breaking new ground for Asian-American actors with Exhibit A, a legal drama from former Castle co-showrunner Alexi Hawley, Hawaii Five-0 co-star Daniel Dae Kim and Jane the Virgin producer Ben Silverman.

The project, written by Hawley, is based on the South Korean series My Lawyer, Mr. Jo. It centers on a disgraced Korean-American prosecutor who finds redemption as a defense lawyer when he pairs with a young idealistic attorney and the two fight for the underdogs of Los Angeles. The original series launched on Korea’s KBS2 earlier this year to strong ratings.

If it goes forward, the show, now in development, would be a rare U.S. broadcast drama with an Asian lead and the first U.S. drama series outside of the action genre where the main lead is Asian American. In addition to Hawaii Five-0, CBS has drama Elementary where the co-lead is played by Lucy Liu.
