Stephen Kay is attached to direct the Sony Pictures Television-based project from a script by Donald Martin and Stephen Tolkin. Judith Verno is the executive producer. In addition to Brisman's murder, Markoff was accused of robbing a Las Vegas woman and attacking a stripper.


UNTITLED WILL FETTERS PROJECT (ABC, New!) - Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage are developing a new drama at the Alphabet about "a group of twentysomething roommates who juggle their personal and professional lives in Washington, D.C."

He'll also executive produce alongside Fake Empire's Schwartz, Savage and Leonard Goldstein. New York Times writer Ashley Parker is also attached as a consultant.
