Development News - Toks Olagundoye, Hari Nef and Ian Duff Board ABC's 'L.A. Law' Revival Pilot

Development News - January 19, 2022

ABC's L.A. Law.

  • Toks Olagundoye, Hari Nef and Ian Duff will co-star on the drama pilot starring Blair Underwood and Corbin Bernsen. Olagundoye previously starred for two seasons in ABC's The Neighbors and one season in ABC's Castle. Nef recurred on Amazon's Transparent and Netflix's You. Duff starred in The CW's one-season drama The Republic of Sarah.
  • Olagundoye will play Erika Jackson, an Assistant District Attorney. She is a force to be reckoned with in the courtroom, but is confronted by the role she plays in a carceral system as a deft attorney and as a woman of color.
  • Nef will play Alana Burke, a transgender lawyer who's so formidable and creative in the courtroom that she makes actual headlines for her outside the box thinking.
  • Duff will play JJ Freeman, a junior associate and idealistic hard-charger who has no problem speaking truth to power, including to his idol, Jonathan Rollins (Underwood), with whom he has fundamental disagreements about what it means to be a Black man in America in 2022.
