Busted tells the story of two investigative journalists, Wendy Ruderman and Barbara Laker, whose reporting helped bring to light one of the biggest police corruption scandals in Philadelphia's history.

"Wendy and Barbara have written an amazing true story, and we're thrilled for it to be SKE's first television project," said SKE President of Production Carla Hacken and SKE President Jim Tauber in a statement. "Sarah Jessica Parker's coming on board, along with David Frankel and Don Roos is simply a perfect combination that we couldn't be happier about."
