TV show description:
Jared Franklin (Breckin Meyer) and Peter Bash (Mark-Paul Gosselaar) are a pair of lawyers that you want to have on your side. With business cards in hand, they’re ready to nab a client within seconds of a car accident, an arrest for solicitation, or any other incident where their legal services may be needed. Once in the courtroom, they’ve got a certain flair and will do or say just about anything to get a win for their clients.

Peter has a knack for connecting with judge and jury, while Jared loves sticking it to authority every chance he gets. Peter holds nothing back in court, is a confident ladies man, and has a killer body that he’s not modest about showing off. Meanwhile, Jared is quick-witted, scrappy, and a master showman in the courtroom. His dad’s a well-known attorney but Jared prefers to make it on his own, liking to stand up for the little guy. He formerly dated Assistant District Attorney Janie Ross (Claire Coffee).

Despite their bad-boy antics, brash presentation and devil-may-care attitudes, their devotion to their clients catches the attention of Stanton Infeld (Malcolm McDowell). He’s a man of culture and philosophy who’s also a fierce competitor in court and the patriarch of Infeld Daniels, one of the top law firms in Los Angeles. He sees a lot of himself in the young men and decides to recruit the pair to bring a fresh energy to the firm. Jared and Peter are joined by their two legal aides; smart and tough paralegal Carmen Phillips (Dana Davis) and Pindar Singh (Kumail Nanjiani), a brilliant writer and researcher who’s socially awkward and has some serious anxiety issues.

Infeld’s decision to take on the fresh talent doesn’t sit well with his nephew, Damien Karp (Reed Diamond), a morally-challenged and ambitious lawyer who has his own plans for the firm. Jared and Peter’s arrival also threatens Karp’s romantic desires for Hanna Linden (Garcelle Beauvais), a beautiful and smart attorney who takes an immediate liking to Jared.

In their new offices at Infeld Daniels, Jared and Peter handle a variety of new and interesting clients but their incredible friendship remains a constant. Time will tell if the devoted buddies’ relationship can survive in this new environment.

Series Finale

Episode #40 — Red or Black
Infeld is convinced he’s going to die after a mysterious invitation beckons him to Las Vegas to confront his destiny. The boys and Dan Mundy follow him to the city of sin, and try to convince him that his death isn’t supposed to happen, and that the whole thing is a self-fulfilling prophecy. Soon they find their own futures hanging in the balance when they’re arrested for cheating a casino out of thousands. Franklin and Bash must put Vegas itself on trial in order to win the day, which they do. The win is bittersweet, as the whole ordeal has raised serious question about their destiny. It’s decided that the future of the legal team of Franklin and Bash will rest solely on one spin of the roulette wheel.
First aired: October 22, 2014.

I can’t believe Franklin and Bash plus Perception are getting cancelled. What is going on. These shows are our favorites. Please rethink this decision. I am really bummed!

I am so disappointed Franklin & Bash has been cancelled. This is one of the few shows I completely enjoyed. Not happy as there is so much crap on tv but this was a very well done show in all aspects.


Joanna Bermea November 17, 2014 at 3:27 pm

Okay TNT what is going on? You have a great show with Franklin and Bash. The problem isn’t the show just needed to be advertised better. The two main characters are hilarious. The whole cast is great. Please bring back the show! My fiance and I look forward to watching all our recordings once are children fall asleep and guess what Franklin and Bash is one of them. Please reconsider!

Perception is also cancelled, Men of a Certain Age is gone, come on TNT, give us some entertainment.


Mary November 16, 2014 at 4:46 pm

So entertaining – not trying to teach or preach, just entertainment. So sick of reality shows, so sorry you’re taking off ANOTHER good show. Please reconsider cancellation, and let us continue to be entertained by Franklin & Bash.

Sigh. I am very, very sad that TNT decided not to renew this show. It was a well written show with great comedy thrown in….and enjoyable to watch. We never watch reality TV (such a waste!) but love funny, off the cuff, well written, and/or well done shows. Now we’ll never know what happens! TNT cancelled Men of a Certain Age a few years ago (which was already aggravating)…now this. What’s next TNT? Going to cancel Rizzoli & Isles too!??! I will ban TNT if that happens!! TNT is already on the edge as it is.


Castles October 24, 2014 at 10:28 pm

Please don’t cancel, we absolutely LOVE this show.

When is this show coming back. Miss it.


Bill Hage August 19, 2013 at 12:48 pm

Franklin and Bash is one of the few good shows on TV these days. Along with Rizzoli&Isles, Perception and a couple of others it is a refreshing break from all the terrible reality shows that are thrown at the viewers.
