Via Deadline:

Written by Steinberg, the untitled project is based on Isaac Wright, Jr., once wrongfully convicted as the kingpin behind one of the largest drug distribution networks in New Jersey, who now practices law in the same courtroom where he was sentenced to life behind bars. In prison, Wright studied the law and worked as a proxy-lawyer, writing briefs and motions to overturn the convictions of over 20 fellow inmates and ultimately to exonerate himself. He now works as a lawyer defending the wrongly accused and going after corrupt institutions.

After passing the New Jersey Bar in 2008, Wright spent nine years being investigated by the New Jersey Bar’s Committee on Character before being admitted to the bar in September 2017. That is when Jackson signed a deal to produce a TV series based on his life.

Isaac took to social media after the ABC deal was done and wrote:

My hope is that this series is able to touch, inspire and motivate those I am unable to reach or help personally. That it encourages more of us to rise up against tyranny and injustice.

And that it serves as a beacon of light, encouraging that you never give up until you’ve overcome all obstacles and achieved unbridled success. #Giant Slayer #MudOnMyBootsBloodOnMyKnife #OooRahhh – TRANSLATION? Get The Strap!
