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

.

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.

slap a laughtrack on it and it can be even crappier than it sounds

I'm a fan of modern fairy tales and magical realism, but this sounds . . . so incredibly awful.

This actually sounds like it could be really funny. I'd definitely give it a shot.

i don't know why - but i think that this could be a funny show. it's an interesting concept and it's different than what we've seen lately. that's one of the GREAT things about comedies i think. they are all so different and it gives variety to what i can watch. i feel like all dramas are pretty much the same - and that gets tiresome after a while.

It might be interested if it was somewhat Pushing Daisies-ish.

If it were done in the tongue-in-cheek seriousness that Pushing Daisies has mastered, it could be good.

Could be funny...could be the stupidest thing ever.

We already had Ally McBeal.I'm not so sure about this show.

It could work, if the writers are incredibly talented and witty and if the actors are subtle. It's worth crossed-fingers.

I laughed a couple of times when I was reading this post. As someone who is in law school, I would be amused to watch a show like this.
