TV show description:
This drama revolves around two scrappy Las Vegas attorneys who go all-in when it comes to representing their clients. No client is too small or too sleazy for the law firm of Morelli & Kaczmarek.

Nick Morelli (Jim Belushi) is the hard-charging senior partner. He’s trying to repair his fractured marriage and stay an active part of his young son’s life. Still, Nick represents his clients to the best of his ability, often taking on cases no one else will touch. His partner, Pete Kaczmarek (Jerry O’Connell), is passionate about many things — the law, fast cars, beautiful women, and expensive clothes. In his spare time, you can often find him cruising the Vegas Strip in search of his newest romantic conquest.

Lisa Tyler (Jurnee Smollet) is the small firm’s new associate. She’s an enthusiastic young attorney who wants to put her days of exotic dancing behind her. The team’s assistant is Zoe Waters (Tanya Fischer). She’s young and sweet and does whatever she can to please her bosses.

The show is based on the lives of real-life Sin City attorneys Michael Cristalli and Marc Saggese.

My husband and I love this series! The actors bring such life and spark to their roles and the scripts are highly entertaining. My only complaint, while I assume it is part of the character’s persona, is I hate the way Belushi is dressed. Yowza – those are some combinations. But, I’ll live with it happily if the show remains on the air.

Go Defenders!!

This is one of the better shows. Belushi and O’Connell work well together and dress very sharp..Keep up the good work!

The pilot for this series was less than inspiring. While it is supposed to be in Vegas, I got no real sense that it was. Also the acting by O’Connell and Belushi was awful. And Belushi looked awful too. If this is the best we are going to see from this much hyped series, i don’t hold out much hope.
