Paul Schneider, formerly of Parks and Recreation and recently of The Newsroom, has joined AMC's upcoming legal drama from Richard La Gravenese and Tony Goldwyn. The still-untitled thriller is about a D.A. who reopens a sensational murder case; Schnieder will play a senior lawyer with the Innocence Project who develops a crush on someone with important information about the case, according to THR. At long last: a show about sexy, conflicted lawyers. What will television conquer next?
