NBC Developing Wendy Davis Dramedy. The network is working on a TV series based on the political career of the filibustering state senator.

In the vein ofThe Good Wife, while she pieces her pride back together, she goes to work in the law firm of her best friend — a black male Republican — and discovers that with no political future to protect, she can unshackle her inner badass.”
