ICM Partners Drops Linda Fairstein As Central Park Five Prosecutor Rages Against Ava DuVernay & ‘When They See Us”

  • Deadline
Exclusive: Linda Fairstein has been dropped by her publisher, and now the ex-Manhattan Deputy District Attorney who spurred the prosecution of the eventually exonerated Central Park Five has been shown the door by her Hollywood literary agency ICM Partners over Netflix’s When They See Us.

This comes as Fairstein lashed out late last night in the Wall Street Journal at Ava DuVernay and Netflix’s acclaimed series as an “outright fabrication” for its depiction of the shameful series of judicial events three decades ago and Fairstein’s pivotal role in them.

ICM has cut ties with Fairstein after several years, I’ve learned. The agency represented the lawyer in her post-prosecution career as the bestselling author of over a dozen mystery novels featuring fictional Manhattan Deputy D.A. Alexandra Cooper. The 1996 offering Final Jeopardy was adopted into a TV movie for ABC in 2001 starring Dana Delany as Cooper.

The Code: Season One Viewer Votes

Are Abe, Maya, and the rest of the Jag team at the top of their game during the first season of The Code TV show on CBS? As we all know, the Nielsen ratings typically play a big role in determining whether a TV show like The Code is cancelled or renewed for season two.

The Code: Season One Ratings

Years ago, Jag was cancelled by NBC after one season, but then CBS picked it up, and it ran for an additional nine seasons, before ending in 2005. The Tiffany Network's NCIS franchise spun off from Jag and is still serving them well. Now they're trying a different take on the format with The Code TV show. Can it too pass muster with the CBS audience and Nielsen households? Will The Code be cancelled or renewed for season two? Stay tuned. *Status update below.

A CBS military legal drama from creators Craig Sweeny and Craig Turk, The Code stars Luke Mitchell, Anna Wood, Ato Essandoh, Phillipa Soo, Dana Delany, and Raffi Barsoumian.

The Code Pulled from CBS Schedule: Is it Canceled?

The Code may not be long for this world. 

CBS has pulled the freshman drama from Monday nights for the next three weeks, likely a sign that the network is not happy with the show's performance. 

More telling is that the show is being replaced by encores of Magnum P.I. 

It's a bizarre move to replace originals with encores, especially during the summer months. 

While it's disheartening for fans of the show, CBS plans to have The Code back on the air in July, with a return to Mondays eyed.

It wouldn't be out of the ordinary for those plans to change. 

The Dana Delany fronted drama series launched back in April. It got solid sampling out of NCIS on Tuesdays, but it was subsequently moved to Mondays. 

The Code Season 1 is averaging 5.1 million total viewers and a 0.6 rating. Those are not terrible numbers,

The Code Season 1 Episode 2 Review: P.O.G.

A smooth transition into the characters' personal lives was certainly welcome.

We got to learn more about the Marine lawyers on The Code Season 1 Episode 2.

Let's start with the new addition, Lt. Harper Li.

First off, it's evident that her parents had a wicked sense of humor to name her after the author of "To Kill a Mockingbird," the ultimate courtroom drama which still resonates decades after Harper Lee wrote it.

The name was also a bit of predestination as her family operates a prestigious law firm, one that she shunned to join the Marines.

Apparently, Harper joined the unit while she was in the midst of organizing her wedding to Bard (not Brad). Abe naturally refused to call her fiance by his correct name, chalking it up to a spelling error on his birth certificate.

‘The Code’ Star Luke Mitchell Talks Playing a Marine and His ‘Home and Away’ Roots

‘The Code’ Star Luke Mitchell Talks Playing a Marine and His ‘Home and Away’ Roots
Luke Mitchell is an actor whose versatility sparks a different impression for each type of viewer. His fellow Aussies may recognize him from playing heartthrobs on the teen series “H20: Just Add Water” and the long-running “Home and Away” soap. Others may have caught him in regular roles on sci-fi or superhero series like “The Tomorrow People” and “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,” and as a murderous villain in NBC’s “Blindspot.” But Mitchell’s most prominent role to date is the lead in CBS’ new procedural, “The Code,” as Captain John “Abe” Abraham. The drama, which premiered April 9 and is now airing on Mondays, follows six lawyers in the Marine Corps in and out of the courtroom. Mitchell sat down with Variety to talk about doing an American accent, his body of work, and his Australian roots.

The Code Season 1 Episode 1 Review: Blowed Up

Jag casts a huge shadow.

The fabled military drama has been gone almost 15 years and yet it lingers in viewers' memories.

Aj Chegwidden has already recurred on NCIS: Los Angeles and Harm and Mac set to return on that same series.

Stepping out of the shadow of Jag is what The Code was up against. Yet it made big strides on The Code Season 1 Episode 1.

Granted, there are certain similarities between The Code and Jag, beyond the courtroom battles.

Related: The Code Sneak Peak

Let's start the male lead character. Jag was supposed to be a cross between Top Gun and A Few Good Men, and Harman Rabb was the Tom Cruise character, a pilot turned lawyer, who was also missing his father.

Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, right?

Luke Mitchell (Blindspot) ably stepped into the role of pretty-boy lawyer.

His Captain John "Abe" Abraham is a Marine legacy.

The Code Sneak Peek: The Few, The Proud, The Lawyers

A series spotlighting military attorneys prosecuting and defending servicemen accused of crimes.

Nope, it's not Jag, originally envisioned as a blend of Top Gun and A Few Good Men.

That courtroom drama aired for a decade, for one season on NBC before moving to CBS for the rest of its run, making stars of David James Elliott and Catherine Bell.

It even spawned a franchise which has been a CBS mainstay since then, NCIS. Maybe you've heard of it.

No, this new series being described is The Code. It debuts behind, you guessed it, NCIS at 9 tonight on CBS before moving to 9 p.m. Mondays starting April 15, taking over the Magnum P.I. slot.

The Code features a team of Marine lawyers who prosecute and defend Marines accused of crimes while in the service.

TV Review: ‘The Code’ on CBS

  • Variety
CBS’s latest procedural stays in what’s become the network’s very particular comfort zone: The world of military court. In the wake of the naval-justice franchise “NCIS” (itself a spinoff of long-ago CBS standby “Jag”), the network perhaps most closely adherent to formula has put together “The Code,” a deeply familiar-feeling product.

On “The Code,” lawyers within the Marine Corps take on cases — giddily trading off, from case to case and episode to episode — the roles of prosecutor and defender. This structure tends to give their work a fairly airless quality: Perhaps more like real lawyers than TV is used to depicting, these attorneys are motivated more by the desire to close out cases quickly and efficiently than by passionate advocacy for their clients. One episode sees a sentencing request agreed upon by “prosecutor” and “defender” over beers; they clink bottles after agreeing they’ll ask the judge for eight years.

William Goldman Remembered By Hollywood: ‘Princess Bride’, ‘Butch Cassidy’ Writer Was “The Best Ever”

  • Deadline
William Goldman Remembered By Hollywood: ‘Princess Bride’, ‘Butch Cassidy’ Writer Was “The Best Ever”
Refresh for updates William Goldman, who won two Oscars for screenwriting, massive respect for his smart storytelling, gratitude for the wisdom of his books about film (Adventures in the Screen Trade) and the stage (The Season: A Candid Look at Broadway) and the hearts of several generations (and counting) of Princess Bride fans, is being remembered today by friends, colleagues and admirers.

“William Goldman was huge part of creating some of the seminal movies of the 70s and beyond,” said Ben Stiller. “His book on screenwriting was a touchstone for me and I always felt star struck and intimidated seeing him at Knicks games.”

Deadline will update this post throughout the day…

So sorry to hear of the passing of William Goldman. He was both witty and talented. His screenplay of my book Misery was a beautiful thing.
