NBC is developing half-hour comedy Danni Lowinski with Glee co-creator Ian Brennan, Tariq Jalil’s Intrigue Entertainment and 20th Century Fox TV.
Danni Lowinski is based on a 2010 German TV series, which has been sold extensively around the world. The US version will follow a working class woman who is rejected by traditional law firms in Milwaukee and decides to change the world.
Brennan will serve as showrunner and executive produce with Jalil and Lucas Carter, along with Jan David Frouman, Red Arrow’s Michael Shmidt and Shirley Bowers.
Red Arrow International will distribute the scripted format worldwide. The series has been remade in a number of territories including the Netherlands, where the remake aired for four seasons.
In the US, the CW ordered a pilot for an American version in 2010 written by Jennie Snyder Urman, which did not go to series.
