Inspired by the 1983 film of the same name, The Star Chamber series will follow the story of a revered female federal appellate court judge in San Francisco.

The original film was directed by Peter Hyams, who co-wrote the script with Roderick Taylor. It followed Michael Douglas’ Steve Hardin, an idealistic Los Angeles Judge, as he becomes frustrated with the technicalities of the law that prevents the prosecution of three criminals, who were each accused of heinous crimes. To solve his problem, Hardin was advised by another fellow judge about the existence of a modern-day Star Chamber, which was originally derived from the 15th-17th century English court where it doesn’t honor the standards of due process. The modern-day Star Chamber is group of judges that identifies criminals who cannot be brought to justice through the judicial system, and takes action against them using a hired assassin.
