Fox, Rob Thomas Developing Modern-Day Take on Les Misérables: Are You Excited or Horrified?

Les Misérables TV SeriesRob Thomas dreamed a dream, and it apparently involved bringing Les Misérables to the small screen.

The man behind Veronica Mars is developing an hour-long drama series for Fox inspired by Victor Hugo’s iconic novel.

According to Deadline, the project — penned by actor-writer Graham Norris — would be set in modern day and center on a brilliant, noble lawyer navigating high society and manage his tumultuous family and romantic life, all while staying one step ahead of a ruthless U.S. Attorney who refuses to let the ghosts of the past die.

The news comes as Les Misérables is in the midst of a revival, thanks in large part to the recent Oscar-winning feature adaptation. An updated stage version is also set to open on Broadway in early 2014.
