Viola Davis PRODUCING New ABC Legal Drama Based on Prosecutor Kim Worthy

According to the YBF, ABC star Viola Davis has announced plans to bring another legal-based drama to the network. DEADLINE reports that Viola and her producing partner (and husband) Julius Tennon have linked with producer Debra Martin Chase to create "Conviction", a legal drama inspired by the life of Kym Worthy, the second African-American to serve as a county prosecutor in Michigan. Kym is also know as "the toughest woman in Detroit."   Some of Kym's high profile cases have included filing charges against Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick  and  her campaign to clear a massive backlog of 11,000 unprocessed rape test kits in Detroit.
