‘Judgement’: Portia Doubleday, Christine Adams & Ken Kirby Join ABC Pilot

DEADLINEEXCLUSIVE: Portia Doubleday (Mr. Robot), Christine Adams (Black Lightning) and Ken Kirby (Good Trouble) are set as series regulars opposite Sarah Shahi, Reid Scott and François Arnaud in Judgement, ABC’s drama pilot from former Charmed showrunner Joey Falco and 20th Television.

Written and executive produced by Falco, Judgement is a high-stakes legal soap that redefines the genre by playing out over two timelines. Fifteen years from now, a woman (Shahi) being vetted for a Supreme Court seat recounts her experience at a prominent D.C. law firm in 2023, where the only thing more controversial than the cases was her messy love life, caught between two feuding brothers (Scott, Arnaud). Now, with a Supreme Court seat on the line, all of her darkest secrets are at risk of coming out, threatening her nomination, her reputation and her marriage.

Doubleday will play Eloise ‘Ellie’ Roth, a quirky, eternally optimistic, up-and-coming associate who strikes an immediate friendship with her new colleague, Mia (Shahi). She also happens to be the daughter of the firm’s founder, leading many to see her as a classic nepo-baby; but the brilliant, determined Ellie sees proving herself as an exciting challenge (almost as exciting as her favorite reality TV show, which she will not shut up about).

Falco executive produces with Melvin Mar, Jake Kasdan, Shahi and Jordan Cerf. Paul McGuigan directs and also executive produces. 20th Television is the studio.

Doubleday is best known for her role as Angela, friend to Rami Malek’s character Elliot, on Mr. Robot, which ran for four seasons on USA Network. She also starred as Heather opposite Matthew Perry in ABC’s Mr. Sunshine. Her film credits include Youth In Revolt opposite Michael Cera, Spike Jonze’s Her and Kimberly Peirce’s Carrie, among others. Doubleday is repped by Anonymous Content, Paradigm Talent Agency and Felker Toczek Suddleson Abramson McGinnis Ryan.
