Inside Move: Eye net gavels in pilot for ‘Justice’

One-hour project comes from Scheidlinger, U.K.'s Lion

CBS may be headed to the courtroom for its next reality skein: The Eye has greenlit the pilot “U.S. Justice,” which follows the lives of actual participants in the judicial system.

The one-hour project will document real cases and the interaction between judges, district attorneys, defense attorneys, defendants and victims. Shooting begins this week in Las Vegas.

“U.S. Justice” will be similar in vein to Lion Television’s “Boston Law” (aka “Real Justice”), which it produced for the BBC and PBS.

Project comes from Rob Scheidlinger (“Sports Night”) and his Omnibus production company, as well as U.K. producer Lion. Scheidlinger, David Fanning (“Frontline”) and Lion’s Nick Catliff and Ben Gale serve as exec producers.

Scheidlinger also has the Touchstone pilot “The Bench” in the works for ABC.

CBS isn’t the only net snooping for reality in the halls of justice: NBC previously picked up 13 episodes of “Trial and Error,” a drama/reality hybrid from Dick Wolf and Bill Guttentag (Daily Variety, Feb. 2). That series will follow the professional and personal lives of five first-year assistant district attorneys in a medium-size city.
