ARTHUR'S LAW (TBS, New!) - The cable channel is developing a domestic take on the German comedy, which follows "unemployed Arthur Ahnepol, played by Jan Josef Liefers, who ekes out a bleak existence. Drawn from the strains of his unhappy marriage and bored to death, he makes a morbid plan: he wants his obnoxious wife to die. With the money from the life insurance there's no obstacle for a restart with his beloved mistress. But an unwritten law dominates the life of the unlucky fellow: every problem solved by Arthur has a far worse effect. And so, he sets off an avalanche of disastrous events." No auspices were given. TBS will also have the rights to run the German version with subtitles. (Deadline.com)
BLUFF CITY LAW (NBC, New!) - Dean Georgaris has scored a pilot order from the Peacock for a new drama about "the lawyers of an elite Memphis law firm that specializes in the most controversial landmark civil rights cases.
