Real-life political fixer Judy Smith continues to be in demand in Hollywood. In addition to serving as co-executive producer of Scandal (and the inspiration for Olivia Pope), Smith's life is serving as fodder for a legal drama in development at Fox.  

The series will be loosely based on Smith's life and will focus on a powerful black woman who becomes the new U.S. Attorney, reports Deadline. The series will be written by Jeremy Miller and Daniel Cohn who will also serve as executive producers.
