Jada Pinkett Smith Lands Lead Role in ABC Drama Pilot 'Murder Town'


It seems that Jada Pinkett Smith will likely be joining Kerry Washington, Viola Davis and Tracee Ellis Ross on ABC sometime next year or in 2017.

Following her one-year stint on FOX’s Gotham, Jada has landed the lead role in the ABC drama pilot Murder Town.

Per Deadline:

“Murder Town” centers on a beautiful and complicated prosecutor (Pinkett Smith) who makes history as Wilmington, Delaware’s, first African American District Attorney. She finds herself confronted by old loyalties and loves, a shocking revelation about her murdered husband and a polarizing, racially-charged case that threatens to burn her and her city to the ground.

Wow! Murder Town sounds juicy! Let’s hope that ABC picks it up to series.

Along with starring in Murder Town, Jada will also executive produce the project.
