If you’ve ever felt that ‘Erin Brockovich’ the movie should have had a sequel or even a prequel, your wish is about to come true. There seems to be a lot of Erin-inspired content that’s about to hit screens. ABC’s new show 'Rebel' is inspired by the fearless Erin Brockovich and while the main character’s name is Annie 'Rebel' Bello, the sass and style of Miss Brokovich comes through loud and clear.

This isn't surprising because 'Rebel' is also produced by Erin Brockovich along with the creative force behind 'Grey's Anatomy' Krista Vernoff. 'Rebel' stars Katey Sagal in the title role as a blue-collar legal advocate without a law degree who cares deeply about the causes she fights for and the people she loves. When Rebel takes on a fight, you better believe she's in it to win.

Erin Brockovich, on who the series is based, says in an interview to Deadline, “'Rebel' is not just my story, it is all of our stories. There is a hero that exists in all of us, and I am so excited for Krista Vernoff and ABC to bring their visionary storytelling to this series. The name Rebel oozes self-empowerment, courage and rising above, even in the worst of circumstances. I cannot think of anyone better to play this role than the indomitable Katey Sagal, who is such a force, as well as the rest of this extraordinary cast."
