The first Daredevil show was initially canceled on Netflix, leading Disney to pick it up for a complete reboot, Daredevil: Born Again, to not only include on their streaming site, but also in becoming a part of the MCU. Charlie Cox will still be portraying the titular character, Matt Murdock slash Daredevil, who works as an attorney, which gives way into tapping a number of real-life lawyers in creation of the series.
According to The Cosmic Circus, Daredevil: Born Again has a list of writers who have real-life experiences as lawyers, where some of them have also already written for TV shows previously. The list of writers includes David Feige (not related to Kevin Feige), Thomas Wong and Zachary Reiter.
David Feige was a public defender in NYC and even started a nonprofit bail organization, The Bronx Freedom Fund. Feige has also written a memoir titled Indefensible: One Lawyer’s Journey into the Inferno of American Justice, which tackles his life experiences. As for his television works, he wrote for ABC’s For Life and co-created TNT’s Raising the Bar.
