Universal Media Studios and Circle of Confusion are behind the hour, which described as the "inverse 'House' - a likable guy in the most unlikable profession." Goldstein, who's a partner in the D.C. law firm Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld, will also serve as a consultant. Schindel will pen the script and executive produce alongside Confusion's David Alpert and David Engel. The latter pair recently inked a first-look deal with 20th Century Fox Television however "Supreme" pre-dates said pact.


TOUGH TRADE (Epix) - Azita Ghanizada ("General Hospital: Night Shift") is the latest addition to the drama pilot, about "three generations of a Nashville music dynasty (Sam Shepard, Lucas Black and Cary Elwes) whose penchant for drink, debauchery and divorce has left it on the verge of bankruptcy." She'll play the wife of Elwes' character. Jenji Kohan and Chris Offutt are behind the hour, which comes from Lionsgate Television.
