The last time Sarah Jessica Parker starred in a television series, she wore Manolos and wrote for a newspaper.
When she returns to the small screen, she may still be wearing Manolos and writing for a newspaper. The subject matter, however, will be very different.
Parker is attached to play one of the two leads in a limited-series adaptation of the nonfiction book, "Busted: A Tale of Corruption and Betrayal in the City of Brotherly Love." The authors, journalists Wendy Ruderman and Barbara Laker, delved into their investigation uncovering police corruption in Philadelphia. The result was a 10-month-long series published in the Philadelphia Daily News, which won a Pulitzer Prize. Once the other lead actress is set, the producers (who happened to be behind "True Detective") will shop the show to networks.
We didn't think SJP would ever come back to TV, but "Busted" will be a limited-run series, which is all the rage these days with big-name movie stars. Hey, if Matthew McConaughey will do it, everyone might just follow suit.
