After a summer full of streaming records, To take may open some new offices.
Series creator Aaron Korsh is in the early stages of developing a show set in the world of his USA Network legal drama for NBCUniversal — but it’s not a reboot or sequel. Instead, the potential series would feature new characters and a new setting, similar to other multi-show franchises (whether there would be any crossover potential with the original is a question for much later).
Los Angeles is the most likely setting for the project, sources say.
Universal Studio Group’s UCP produced To take for the US, and discussions are ongoing with the studio about the new project. A potential Korsh series would most likely run on an NBCU-owned platform.
The news comes next To take has been the most streamed title in the United States for twelve straight weeks, according to Nielsen data (available on Netflix and Peacock) – and two weeks and changes after the end of the writers’ strike, which allowed writers to return to work and attend meetings about possible new projects.
Korsh said The Hollywood Reporter in August that he had a To take revival “if someone reached out and the cast was into it,” but only “if I could come up with something that excited me.” But if I could wave a magic wand and get another show on the air, it wouldn’t be a continuation of To take.”
However, he also noted that the first thing he wrote next To take ended in 2019 was a spec script that “contains a lot of the DNA of what people liked To take. I think it’s a cousin ofTo take, but more of a reflection of where I was when I wrote it. ”
To take ran for nine seasons on USA and led to the spin-offPearson, following the character of Gina Torres. It only lasted one season. The original series starred Gabriel Macht, Patrick J.
Adams, Rick Hoffman, Meghan Markle, Sarah Rafferty, Torres and Amanda Schull; Dulé Hill and Katherine Heigl were regulars for the past two seasons, following the departure of Adams and Markle.
