The project, 'One Police Plaza,' centers on New York City's first female commissioner, to be played by Bassett.
Former prosecutor and best-selling crime novelist Linda Fairstein and Kenneth L. Solarz are writing the script and will executive produce 'One Police Plaza' with Gordon and Deborah Spera.
