CBS has bought a legal drama about a gay lawyer who returns home to Mississippi.

According to Deadline Hollywood, Rebel Law centers on the attorney as he joins his family's law practice.

The family members “work through their personal and political differences both inside and outside the courtroom,” Deadline wrote.

Involved in the project are Kit Williamson, Michael Rauch, Lisa Kudrow and Dan Bucatinsky.

Williamson and Rauch wrote the pilot, while Rauch, Kudrow and Bucatinsky executive produce. Williamson is also co-executive producing for CBS TV Studios.

Williamson created, stars in and executive produces EastSiders, a dark comedy about a gay male couple facing infidelity which began as a web series and was later featured on Logo TV's website. The series' two seasons are now available on Netflix. Williamson also played a recurring guest role on AMC's Mad Men.

Bucatinsky is best known for playing James Novak in the ABC drama Scandal. He's also appeared on Web Therapy, Kudrow's now-canceled Showtime comedy.
