It’s been a long while since Sarah Jessica Parker has been on TV, but actors and actresses have had comebacks left and right as of late, and Parker may yet get some more time in the sun.

Currently she’s attached to a new drama based on the book Busted: A Tale Of Corruption And Betrayal In The City Of Brotherly Love, which is itself based on a series of Pulitzer Prize winning articles that uncovered a big ring of police corruption in Philadelphia in 2009.

“Wendy and Barbara have written an amazing true story, and we’re thrilled for it to be SKE’s first television project,” she and Tauber said in a statement. “Sarah Jessica’s coming on board, along with David Frankel and Don Roos is simply a perfect combination that we couldn’t be happier about.”

“SKE” is Sidney Kimmel Entertainment, owned by the famed philanthropist and film produce who is now dipping his toe into TV as well, as is the trend recently, given the increasingly quality of the medium. The show boasts the producers of True Detective, so that would already be a good start.

There’s no word yet on which network the show would air on, nor when we might see it, but it seems to be moving along at a pretty good clip at this point. But with True Detective producers and Sarah Jessica Parker, it feels like it could be HBO. More details to follow.
