Snow White Inspires Legal Drama
While this sounds like a hoax, the Hollywood Reporter insists that Fox is serious in adapting the premise of Snow White to a legal drama. Georgia and the Seven Associates will feature a lawyer exiled from the big firm headed by her mother so she opens up a storefront operation with seven oddball counselors. The series was created by producers Chris Brancato and Bert Salke (When in Rome), feature writers David Weissman and David Diamond and director Ken Kwapis.
"It is L.A. Law vs. the little engine that could," Brancato told the trade.
THR notes the lawyers will somewhat resemble their inspiration, “For instance, Doc is an ambulance chaser who carries neck braces in his trunk, and Sleepy is a bike messenger who parties at night and naps in the office.”
The producers say they were inspired by seeing the seven dwarves holding up the Disney building across the studio lot.
"We thought while we’re sitting here, we may as well use some of Walt’s creative ideas," Brancato added, confirming Disney is comfortable with the notion.
