Showtime, Kings take aim with ‘Guns’

'Good Wife' exec producers have new drama at pay cabler

Robert and Michelle King, exec producers of “The Good Wife,” have a new project in development at Showtime.

The tentatively titled “Girls With Guns,” from CBS Television Studios and Scott Free Prods., is a drama about two Los Angeles sisters whose family moves to Israel, the one place in the world where women are drafted into the military.

The Kings will write the pilot and will exec produce with Ridley Scott and David Zucker. The project is the first for Robert and Michelle King under their overall deal with CBS Television Studios.

In addition to launching the new season of “Homeland” on Sept. 30, Showtime is set to debut two new drama series in 2013: Michael Sheen starrer “Masters of Sex” and “Ray Donovan,” with Liev Schreiber.

The Kings are repped by Paradigm.
