NBC sees Baldwin as ‘EDNY’ lead

Drazan to write, exec produce law skein

This article was corrected on Jan. 31, 2003.

Billy Baldwin (“Backdraft”) is finalizing a deal to lead the ensemble cast of “EDNY,” a Peacock drama pilot from Tony Drazan (“Hurlyburly”).

Project, to be produced by NBC Studios, was one of two cast-contingent pilot orders, along with Barry Schindel’s “Law Dogs,” duking it out for the sixth hourlong pilot slot on the NBC network’s development slate (Daily Variety, Jan. 17). With the Baldwin deal in place, pilot production will go forward on “EDNY” — and likely not on “Law Dogs,” from Universal Network Television.

Drazan will write and exec produce “EDNY,” which stands for Eastern District New York. Baldwin will portray Mike “Mad Dog” Kelly, the ensemble’s central character, a supercharged, brilliant prosecutor who leads a team of U.S. attorneys.

Thesp, who is repped by Paradigm and attorneys Armstrong Hirsch and managed by Integrated Management, starred in a CBS pilot last year from Universal called “R.U.S.H.,” which did not wind up going to series.

His credits also include indie feature “One-Eyed King.”
