NBC orders Prism & Bluff City Law legal drama pilots

NBC has greenlit two legal drama pilots, Prism and Bluff City Law, Deadline has confirmed. Prism is a psychological thriller while Bluff City Law (working title) is a character-driven legal drama centering on civil rights cases.

Written by Daniel Barnz, who also directs, Prism is inspired by Rashomon, the 1950 Japanese period psychological thriller directed by Akira Kurosawa (who used the Rashomon Effect plot device which involves various characters providing contradictory interpretations of the same incident). Prism is described as a provocative exploration of a murder trial in which every episode is told through the perspective of a different key person involved.

Each new version of the facts ratchets up the mystery and the suspense, calling into question everything we have seen so far and asking is the right person on trial? Driven by an ensemble of complicated characters, the show lets the audience ask if truth matters less than who can tell the most compelling story.
