TV show description:      
A legal drama, this TV show is set in Charleston, South Carolina and revolves around a gorgeous Yankee litigator and a charming southern attorney who must hide their intense mutual attraction as a police sex scandal threatens to tear the city apart.

Jamie Sawyer (Anna Wood) is cool, confident and armed with south side of Chicago street-smarts as she takes on the good ol’ boys in the South. Her handsome courtroom rival is Roy Rayder (Cam Gigandet), a divorced father of two. He embodies the Old South and is the newly named City Attorney — thanks to his influential former father-in-law, Dec Fortnum (Gregory Harrison).

When disgraced cop Lee Anne Marcus (Georgina Haig) hires Jamie to represent her in a lawsuit against the police department, Jamie and Roy discover that Lee Anne is at the center of a sinister case with dire implications for the members of the Charleston PD.

Heading that department is Deputy Chief Holland Knox (Michael Gladis), a family man who radiates integrity. Working under him are cocky and corrupt detective Terry McCandless (Shawn Hatosy) and Preston Cruz (Adam Rodríguez), Jamie’s well-respected boyfriend — a man who might not be all that he appears.

Helping Jamie is her confidante and paralegal, Vi Briggs (Kim Wayans), an expert at digging up case-winning information.

As Jamie and Roy spar in and out of the courtroom, dark secrets simmer behind every door and threaten to tarnish the genteel facade of seductive Charleston.

Series Finale:

A verdict is reached in Lee Anne’s sexual harassment case against the Charleston Police Department. Meanwhile, Jamie and Roy decide whether or not they are ready to take the next step in their relationship.

    This show, Reckless, was a fresh take on the drama t.v. shows. It was an exceptional series that should not have been cancelled. The Charleston, SC scenery, accents, and local references made for an intriguing hour of television drama. PLEASE bring this show back to life!

    You finally had a quality show on your hands and you decide to pull it after 13 episodes? what are you thinking? Very poor business acumen and an obvious lack of creativity.

    I think Reckless should be continued. In light of other CBS shows I don’t understand why it was cancelled as it had the ingredients of an intriguing legal drama with ongoing crime waiting to be attacked by the two charming attornys who also had an intriguing attraction to each other. Their controlled affair was very enjoyable to watch develop more and more to show their actual feelings to each other and I thought the courtroom drama was well planned and interesting to view.
    This certainly outclasses others of your newer shows, e.g., Murder in the First Under the Dome.

    I can’t believe they cancelled this show to put on 2 stupid summer shows when this one had me hooked from the first episode. How can anybody like Under The Dome, it doesn’t make sense on how it continues when it has a terrible hook to drag people into it. Watched the first episode for 5 minutes and realized I wasn’t going to like it and turned it off.

    It’s a real disappointment to cancel reckless . This TV show was very entertaining and made you want to turn in next week to see what else was going on that’s very rare and it was nice these days to see the show that had a story behind it , it’s very classy also this show got you thinking and was very sexy and had a lot of class. since reality shows seem to be taking over… Most of them are really hard to watch and are boring who cares about other people’s lives most of the shows are really so unprofessional and I hate to say it stupid. To bring back the shows you take off the air and another show ilike Dallas was taken off… hope you do the right thing and bring some of those entertaining shows back on the air get rid of half of a chunk of reality show who cares either they are really not worth the time to watch them.
