At the peak of their careers, with the respect and trust of their new charges hard enough to win, the women are forced to implement the newest trend in police and citizen oversight sweeping the country: the body cam. Charged with running this controversial program, their whole tenure relies on their success as they navigate what also are to become the most challenging years of their personal lives." Sony Pictures Television, home to Steinberg's recent two-year overall deal, is behind the hour, which has a penalty attached. (Deadline.com)

They'll write and executive produce alongside Denis Leary via his Apostle banner. (THR.com)
