Anna Paquin to Star in Legal Drama Pilot ‘Broken’
Deadline announced today that True Blood‘s Anna Paquin has signed on to headline a potential new legal drama for ABC titled Broken.
Anna stars as Gemma, a ruthless Dallas divorce attorney whose life begins to unravel when her emotionally damaged, love-addicted sister (played by Charity Wakefield) resurfaces. The cast also includes Blair Underwood as Gemma’s boss and T.R. Knight as her work nemesis.
Written by actress-producer Meaghan Oppenheimer, Broken is executive produced by Reese Witherspoon. Production on the pilot begins soon with the decision about whether or not ABC will order it to series announced in May.
We’ll next see Anna on screen in A&E’s Roots, premiering Memorial Day.
