ABC Orders Cop Comedy Pilot ‘The Trustee’ from Elizabeth Banks
Elizabeth Banks has a new TV project in the works at ABC. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the network has given a pilot order to an hourlong dramedy produced by Banks called The Trustee. Written by Jay Scherick and David Ronn, the series centers on “a driven but stubborn detective who finds unlikely help from her precinct’s trustee, a larger-than-life ex-con who is finishing out her prison sentence doing menial tasks for the police department. Although the two have completely opposing views on crime and punishment, a highly entertaining and successful partnership is born.” Banks also has comedies in development at NBC and CBS.
