Partner Track - What We Know So Far

A new legal drama series is currently in the works at Netflix. The upcoming series, "Partner Track" will follow Ingrid Yun, a young Asian-American lawyer, as she fights to climb the partner track at a high-powered law firm (via Deadline). The series is based on the novel of the same name by Helen Wan and was developed for television by Georgia Lee ("The Expanse"), the latter of whom is also acting as co-showrunner alongside Sarah Goldfinger ("Trinkets," "Grimm"). Longtime director Julie Anne Robinson is slated to direct at least the first two episodes of the series. Robinson's previous directing credits include "Grey's Anatomy," "Weeds," "Scandal" and "Bridgerton" (via IMDB).

Upon the announcement of the new series in September 2021, Lee said in a statement, "We are so deeply excited to bring this story of an Asian American woman trying to break the glass ceiling at an elite law firm to life" (via Deadline). Jinny Howe, the VP of Original Series at Netflix, also gave a statement, which reads, "We're proud of the incredible team assembled to bring to life 'Partner Track' ... Full of fun and romance, this is a contemporary and insightful look at the added pressures for women and those of underrepresented backgrounds in the workplace today."

Here's everything else we know so far about "Partner Track."
