ITV America has inked a development and production deal with former prosecuting attorney and television producer Marcia Clark.
Together, Clark and ITV America will develop unscripted series for broadcast, cable and OTT platforms. Under the terms of the partnership, Clark (pictured) will work across ITV America’s portfolio of production labels, where she will server as executive producer on all projects she develops, with the option to appear on camera.
Clark recently teamed with ITV America prodco ITV Entertainment on the A&E series Marcia Clark Investigates the First 48, which premieres March 29 at 8 p.m. ET/PT. Each episode of the series will focus on a specific case, examining the first 48 hours after the crime took place. The seven-part series will debut with an episode dedicated to the case of Casey Anthony.
“As someone dedicated to exposing the truth in important stories that have not fully been told, Marcia is invaluable to the process of developing and producing content in this space,” said ITV America chief creative officer David Eilenberg, in a statement. “We are thrilled to be her partner and to provide a platform for her passion in championing these stories and the people whose lives are affected by them.”
Clark began her career as a criminal defense attorney, going on to become a prosecutor in the LA District Attorney’s Office in 1991. She handled a number of high-profile cases and was the lead prosecutor for the trial of O.J. Simpson.
