"Dead Lawyers," the high-concept legal drama that was originally developed for Syfy eight years ago, is being reworked by writers Graham Yost and Fred Golan.
Stamos will lead the series as a "hot-shot lawyer" who lands in his own version of hell when he is hit and killed by a bus. He finds himself in a law firm composed of other dead lawyers who try to right miscarriages of justice in order to redeem themselves.
The project will be pitched to networks in the upcoming week.
Stamos has been seen on Broadway in Bye Bye Birdie, Nine, Cabaret and How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying. The actor has also guest-starred on Fox's "Glee" and is best known for playing Uncle Jesse on the television series "Full House."
