NBC Picks Up Jamie Foxx Mafia Show

Paulie GualtieriImage via WikipediaDeadline reports the network has just closed a deal for a new drama series based on a trailer which Jamie Foxx shot with Selma Blair (Hellboy), Paul Sorvino (The Cooler), Tony Sirico (The Sopranos) and James Russo (Public Enemies) Tommy’s Little Girl follows a young girl (Blair) raised in a mafia family who is hidden away in an orphanage after her family is murdered by a competing mafia crime boss. She grows up to become an attorney by day, and a deadly, well trained killer by night, as she avenges her family’s murder and attempts to locate her last living relative. Though the deal has talent attached, there’s no guarantee the aforementioned actors from Foxx’s trailer will make it to the pilot. Jorge Zamacona will write and executive produce the series described as The Sopranos meets Le Femme Nikita.
