Congratulations to JANET MONTGOMERY, whose pilot Made In Jersey has been picked up and commissioned for series.
Made In Jersey is a brand new drama for CBS, produced by Sony Pictures Television in association with CBS Television Studios. With a pilot written by creator/co-executive producer Dana Calvo and directed by Mark Waters, the show is about Martina Garretti (MONTGOMERY), a young working-class woman who uses her street smarts to compete among her pedigreed Manhattan colleagues at a prestigious New York law firm. She finds her firm’s cutthroat landscape challenging, but what she lacks in an Ivy League education she more than makes up for with tenacity and blue-collar insight. After just a few weeks, firm founder Donovan Stark (played by Kyle MacLachlan), takes note of Martina’s ingenuity and resourcefulness, as does her sassy secretary Cyndi Vega (Toni Trucks). With the support of her big Italian family, including her sexy older sister Bonnie (Erin Cummings), Martina is able to stay true to her roots as a bold, passionate lawyer on the rise in a new intimidating environment.
Filming for the series commences in July in New York. Check out the trailer and behind-the-scenes interviews below:
