In the big-screen version of The Firm, the role of Mitch’s wife was played by Jeanne Tripplehorne. In the small screen reboot that NBC is developing for midseason, it will be filled by Molly Parker! Best known for her work in HBO’s Deadwood, Parker will portray Abby, the teacher-wife of Mitch McDeere (Josh Lucas).
The series will update John Grisham’s novel. Natural Born Killers star Juliette Lewis has already joined the legal drama, along with The Killing‘s Callum Keith Rennie.
The Firm starts shooting in the fall.
