The company’s title is still unknown, but it has already signed a first-look deal with Universal TV and snapped up a legal drama from Revenge showrunner Sunil Nayar. The series will center on a Sikh law student working at a renegade student-run law firm to take on the country’s biggest issues and institutions, giving voice to the voiceless.

Both women have experience running a production company; America with Take Fountain Productions and Teri under the Yellow Brick Road banner.

Since Golden Globe-winning show Ugly Betty ended seven years ago, America has juggled producing work with acting gigs. She can currently be seen in NBC’s Superstore, which she also produces.
