Jada Pinkett Smith will be executive producing and starring in an ABC legal drama called ‘Murder Town’ we have learned.

Ms. Jada  will star as a beautiful and complicated prosecutor who makes history asWilmington, 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.

Ms. Jada recently said that after the Gotham season finale that she’d be open to returning to the small screen.

“[I’D] BE DOWN TO [FIND] A CHARACTER WHO MAKES ME WANT TO GO TO WORK EVERYDAY, BUT I’D ABSOLUTELY DO MORE TELEVISION. I LOVE THE PACE OF TELEVISION. TV IS SO DIFFERENT FROM MOVIES BECAUSE OF THE PACE. I THINK THAT PEOPLE WHO SURVIVE DOING TV CAN SURVIVE ANYTHING.”
