Jada Pinkett Smith is coming back to primetime TV in the new ABC pilot, “Murder Town.”

The 44-year-old actress, who starred in the first season of FOX’s hit series, “Gotham,” will executive produce and star in “Murder Town” as the first African American District Attorney of Wilmington, Delaware.

Via Deadline:

Written by veteran showrunner Barry Schindel (Intelligence, Castle) based on an original script by Rob Fresco, Murder Town centers on a beautiful and complicated prosecutor (Pinkett Smith) who makes history as Wilmington, Delaware’s, first African American District Attorney. She finds herself confronted by old loyalties and loves, a shocking revelation about her murdered husband and a polarizing, racially-charged case that threatens to burn her and her city to the ground.

Congratulations to JPS!

No word yet on when we can expect “Murder Town” to premiere, but I’ll keep you posted as more info becomes available.
