A “Foxy Brown” TV series is in development at Hulu with Meagan Good attached to star and produce, TheWrap has confirmed.

The original 1974 film followed Brown (played by Pam Grier) as she fought back against the drug dealers who murdered her boyfriend. The character has become a cultural icon, inspiring Quentin Tarantino’s “Jackie Brown,” also starring Grier, as well as Beyonce’s character Foxxy Cleopatra in “Austin Powers: Goldmember,” among others.

Malcolm Spellman and Ben Watkins are attached to write and executive produce, with Good producing. DeVon Franklin, Tony Krantz, Jason Weinberg and Evan Hainey will also executive produce. Drew Comins will serve as co-executive producer.

MGM originally released “Foxy Brown” in 1974 and still owns the rights, leading to the TV series adaptation.

Good most recently starred on Fox’s “Minority Report” TV series adaptation, based on the Steven Spielberg film of the same name, and also headlined NBC’s “Deception.” Her film credits include “Think Like a Man Too” and indie “A Girl Like Grace,” which she co-produced.
