Underwood is set to reprise his role as attorney Jonathan Rollins from NBC's Emmy-winning 1986-1994 hit legal drama that Steven Bochco created with Terry Louise Fisher. Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow co-creator Marc Guggenheim is writing the sequel series with fellow Arrow/Legends writer Ubah Mohamed, with director Anthony Hemingway on board as an executive producer. In the reboot, "the venerable law firm of McKenzie Brackman reinvents itself as a litigation firm specializing in only the most high-profile, boundary-pushing and incendiary cases," according to Deadline. "Underwood reprises his role as Rollins, who has gone from idealistic to more conservative as he clashes with millennial JJ Freeman to decide the best path forward for the firm to effect political and legal change. While the focus will be on the new generation of lawyers at the firm working with Rollins, I hear other original cast members will likely make appearances should the project go to series." Steven Bochco's son, Jesse Bochco, and his widow Dayna Bochco played a key role in putting the sequel series together via Steven Bochco Productions. L.A. Law won 15 Emmys throughout its eight-season run, including four Outstanding Drama Series.
