NEW SERIES DESCRIPTIONS
Harry’s Law (s/NBC)
Emmy® Award-winning writer/producer David E. Kelley (Boston Legal, The Practice, Ally McBeal) weaves his rich storytelling into a new legal dramedy -- starring Academy Award® winner Kathy Bates -- about embracing the unexpected and everything life throws at you. Harriet Korn (Kathy Bates) doesn't believe things happen for a reason. But they do. A curmudgeonly ex-patent lawyer, she is abruptly fired from her blue chip law firm and is forced to search for a fresh start. She finds it when her world unexpectedly collides, literally, with Malcolm Davies (Amil Ameen, The Bill), a good-hearted college student who desperately needs Harriet's help in court and subsequently goes to work for her. No sooner has she found her feet and new offices in an abandoned shoe store than legal hotshot Adam Branch (Nate Corddry, The Invention of Lying) accidentally hits her with his fully loaded BMW. Inspired by Harry's no-nonsense understanding of the law, Adam takes leave of his shiny corporate firm to help out. Now, these unlikely kindred spirits -- with the help of Harriet's shoe-savant assistant, Jenna (Brittany Snow, Hairspray) -- are ready for whatever walks in through the doors of "Harry's Law and Fine Shoes."
Perfect Couples (s/NBC)
Perfect Couples depicts the misadventures of three engaging couples as they struggle to find out what makes the ideal relationship -- and how to maintain it through humorous trial-and-error. The series explores their heroic journey in search of the perfect relationship without destroying each other in the process. Dave (Kyle Bornheimer, Worst Week) and Julia (Christine Woods, Flash Forward) are the relatable, normal couple, but Julia's hope of remaining the cool, low-maintenance chick is tested by Dave’s attempts to keep both his wife and his needy best friend Vance (David Walton, 100 Questions) equally happy. Vance, along with the neurotic Amy (Mary Elizabeth Ellis, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia), are the high-passion, high-drama couple who bring out the best and worst in each other. The third duo features Rex (Hayes MacArthur, She’s Out of My League), a reformed party guy, and, and his wife, Leigh (Olivia Munn, Attack of the Show), who considers herself as the group’s mother hen. Believing that they are relationship experts, Rex and Leigh have attended every class and seminar on relationships -- and regard themselves as the "perfect couple." Jon Pollack (30 Rock) and Scott Silveri (Friends) are the executive producers while Andy Ackerman (Seinfeld, The New Adventures of Old Christine) is director. The series is produced by Universal Media Studios.
The Cape (s/NBC)
The Cape is a one-hour drama series starring David Lyons (ER) as Vince Faraday, an honest cop on a corrupt police force, who finds himself framed for a series of murders and presumed dead. He is forced into hiding, leaving behind his wife Dana (Jennifer Ferrin, Life on Mars) and son, Trip (Ryan Wynott, Flash Forward). Fuelled by a desire to reunite with his family and to battle the criminal forces that have overtaken Palm City, Vince Faraday becomes “The Cape" – his son’s favourite comic book superhero – and takes the law into his own hands.
Body of Proof (s/ABC)
Body of Proof, the new one-hour drama starring Dana Delany (Desperate Housewives). Dr. Megan Hunt (Dana Delany) is a brilliant neurosurgeon whose world is turned upside down when an accident puts an end to her time in the operating room. In her new career as a Medical Examiner, she is determined to solve the puzzle of who or what has killed the victims. Along the way, Megan finds that their lives and the lessons they hold can be applied to her own personal journey of redemption and forgiveness.
