HBO has given a pilot order to Criminal Justice, a New York–set legal drama starring James Gandolfini. Maybe you can go home again! The show, based on the 2008 U.K. series of the same name, stars Gandolfini as a "disheveled jailhouse lawyer" who's representing a young cab driver charged with murder, Deadline reports. Usually we hate wink-winkiness, but can Lorraine Bracco please play a judge on this show at some point?
