Wendy Davis is the 'Inspiration' for New NBC Drama

Although many people hoped Texas state Sen. Wendy Davis' pro-abortion filibuster would be her last primetime appearance, NBC has just announced she is the 'inspiration' for a new TV show:

Written by Jennifer Cecil, the untitled project centers on a female Democratic senator who, after losing the Texas governor’s race, gets her world turned upside down. In the vein of The Good Wife, while she pieces her pride back together, she goes to work in the law firm of her best friend — a black male Republican — and discovers that with no political future to protect, she can unshackle her inner badass.

So let me get this straight. NBC is 'inspired' by someone who conducted a (failed) 11-hour filibuster against a common sense partial birth abortion ban and then lost convincingly in a statewide election? Oh, and that was after she used an empty wheelchair in an attack ad against her handicapped Republican opponent. 

Yeah, I can see how she makes for a heroic protagonist.

Based on Davis' losing track record, NBC better hope she doesn't want to do a cameo, or they can kiss their ratings goodbye.
