Red Arrow Studios International scripted format Danni Lowinski is back in development at CBS.
The new development will be executive produced by Jennie Snyder Urman, developer and showrunner of Jane the Virgin, and her Sutton St. Productions.
The new series, called Danni Delgado, will see the original German female character cast as a Latina lead.
Danni Delgado will be written and produced by Nicki Renna (Charmed), with Shirley Bowers for Red Arrow Studios International and Intrigue Entertainment’s Tariq Jalil and Lucas Carter executive producing.
The story follows a former hairdresser turned law graduate who is whip-smart, mouthy and undeniably herself. But when she’s rejected by every straight-laced traditional law firm in town, she decides to change the world from her mall-kiosk law practice, one dollar-a-minute case at a time.
The successful original 65 x 1 hour German series was created by Marc Terjung and produced by Markus Brunnemann and UFA FICTION for SAT.1 in Germany. It starred multi-award winning actress Annette Frier as Danni, and proved a long-running ratings success for SAT.1.
Red Arrow Studios International distributes the Danni Lowinski scripted format worldwide. The series has been adapted in a number of territories including the Netherlands, where the remake aired for four seasons.
The deal is managed for Red Arrow Studios International by Shirley Bowers, VP Sales & Acquisitions for North America, Australia and New Zealand.
In October, it was announced that Red Arrow’s scripted format Einstein is also in development at CBS.
