Team Downey's Robert Downey Jr. and Susan Downey will produce with Robert Cort, while David Gambino, Eric Hetzel and Joe Horacek will executive produce with Susan Feiles and Chris Darling.

Now this idea I like. I loved the Perry Mason shows. I still watch the black and white reruns sometimes when nothing else is on....they're very entertaining.

Robert Downey Jr. would be perfect for this too. I can see him doing that part very well.
