Cuba Gooding Jr. has boarded Fox's drama pilot, Guilty.

The show centers on William "Billy" Remz (Cuba Gooding Jr.), a brilliant, morally questionable defense attorney who, after being falsely convicted of fraud and stripped of his legal license, uses his unorthodox methods to solve the cases he's been prohibited from handling ... and to exact revenge on those who set him up.

The project is written by Marc Guggenheim and Greg Berlanti with McG directing.

The actor is best known for his roles in Jerry Maguire and Red Tails.

This project is still in development.
