John Grisham Shared Universe in Development at Hulu, Starting With ‘Rainmaker,’ ‘Rogue Lawyer’

Hulu has begun development on a John Grisham shared universe, the streamer announced on Tuesday. The first two projects in development are companion series adaptations of “Rogue Lawyer” and “The Rainmaker.”

Written and executive produced by Michael Seitzman and Jason Richman, the storylines of the two projects in what is being called “The Grisham Universe” will stand on their own, but will intersect at points and share characters. The series will be designed such that viewers can watch each season independently or bounce from the first episode of “Rainmaker” to the first episode of “Rogue Lawyer,” then back to “Rainmaker,” etc.

Published in 2015, “Rogue Lawyer” follows the unconventional street lawyer Sebastian Rudd, known for taking on the cases no one else will touch, as he’s contacted by a serial kidnapper who knows the whereabouts of the assistant chief of police’s missing daughter.
