The Seven Dwarfs Meet LA Law in New Fox Series



What, you think that headline's ridiculous? Just you wait till you learn more about the new series Fox is developing called Georgia and the Seven Associates.

First off, the title's Snow White reference is no accident. The idea for this dramedy is a modern-day take on the fairy tale, set at a law firm. Or, as the Hollywood Reporter puts it, it's "The Devil Wears Prada meets Taxi set in Los Angeles's legal circles." Or possibly it's "LA Law vs. the little engine that could."

Um, OK, keep talking . . .

It centers on Georgia Burnett, a young lawyer who is banished from a top law firm run by her stepmother and forced to team up with seven quirky lawyers at a storefront legal office.

It gets even better, so read more.

The associates at the firm will have the personalities of the Seven Dwarfs. For instance, Doc is an ambulance chaser who carries neck braces in his trunk, and Sleepy is a bike messenger who parties at night and naps in the office.

I presume Sneezy is the hypochondriac, Dopey's the idiot junior associate, and Happy's the ex-cheerleader who's always buying bagels to celebrate minor occasions.

Oh yeah, there's more:

Some of the legal cases will be modernized fairy tales, like one about three people whose homes were taken away by Wolf Corp.

And here's the kicker: "The tone we are looking to do is grounded," one of the producers told the Reporter. Yeah — Devil Wears Prada meets Snow White meets LA Law meets The Little Engine That Could meets Taxi, with a character whose name actually might be Sneezy? Sounds totally realistic to me.
