Hamlet, The TV Drama

I'm surprised I missed references to "The Prince Of Motor City" the first time around.  This potential new ABC drama claims to have "Shakespearean themes."  The obvious guess (as the above post points out) is a battle over who takes charge of the family business when the dad dies, the son is not quite ready, and the evil uncle swoops in and takes control.

Could be good, I suppose, if they actually went for it and did a planned 2-season run or something, complete with accidental murder of the uncle's advisor, eventually insanity and suicide of the girlfriend, and so on, culminating in the big death scene at the end of the series.
