Former IJ Clerk’s Story Sold as New NBC Pilot

Hollywood Reporter recently announced that NBC has picked up for development Barely Legal, a half-hour comedy based on the true story of former IJ law clerk Kathleen Holtz, “who in November 2007 passed the notoriously difficult California bar at age 18 to become the state’s youngest lawyer.” Kathleen was a 16-year-old first-year law student at UCLA when she clerked at IJ.

Rob Morrow, of Northern Exposure fame, developed Barely Legal and will serve as the program’s executive producer.
