Our best and favorite president, Barack Obama, had a great attorney general in Eric Holder, who, like Obama, is living his best life since leaving the White House.

A life that has apparently taken him to Hollywood.

According to Deadline, Holder will be executive-producing Main Justice, a legal drama series inspired by … get this ... a U.S. attorney general (not sure if the actor will be black). Deadline reports:

Centered around the U.S. Attorney General, the show takes us into the tumultuous world of the 5th floor of the Department of Justice where he takes on the biggest legal and investigative cases in the country all while being the youngest person to ever hold such an esteemed position.


The show is written by Sascha Penn (Survivor’s Remorse) and executive-produced by Holder and über-producer Jerry Bruckheimer. The project falls under the overall deal Jerry Bruckheimer Television inked with CBS TV Studios in July.

CBS, known in some parts as the “old-people network,” might even grab a few younger viewers for this one.
