Hilary Duff Is Barely Legal

Hilary Duff transits from the Disney Channel to prime time programming on NBC with this new comedy series called Barely Legal. She is going to play an 18-year old lawyer. I'm seeing how this show is gonna go ---- her character must be a whiz at some stuff, but being 18, she may not be completely wise and mature in making the right decisions and will make blunders as she goes through life (hence, the comedy).

Her show will be produced by Rob Morrow (that guy from Numb3rs which I haven't been watching in a while now...)

NBC loves shows about young female lawyers this development season.

On the heels of the pilot order for David E. Kelley's legal dramedy "Legally Mad," the network has picked up for development "Barely Legal," a half-hour comedy based on the true story of Kathleen Holtz, who in November 2007 passed the notoriously difficult California bar at age 18 to become the state's youngest lawyer.

She would be played by Hilary Duff, who has come on board as part of her talent deal with the network and Universal Media Studios.

"Barely," which has received a script commitment, hails from actor Rob Morrow, who developed the project through his company Bits and Pieces Prods. and is exec producing.

Elisa Bell ("Little Black Book") is penning the project, which is being produced by UMS.

Duff, Morrow, Bell and Holtz are repped by WMA. Duff is managed by Curtis Talent, Morrow by the Hofflund Co. - Source
