LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Michael Rapaport will develop, star in and produce a drama project at CBS.
The untitled project is based on an idea Rapaport has tossed around for four years. It revolves around the lives of social workers in New York and is inspired by the experiences of a good friend of Rapaport’s who is a social worker in the Big Apple.
“It will deal with the ups and downs and the goods and bads of what social workers do,” Rapaport said. “It’s going to be very touching and emotional, as what these characters do is so tough and gritty, but there also will be a lot of room for humor.”
The script will be written by “Basketball Diaries” scribe Bryan Goluboff
Following his recurring role on NBC’s offbeat comedy “My Name Is Earl,” Rapaport co-stars this season on Fox’s gritty drama “Prison Break.”
