OWN is taking viewers back to court. The cable channel has announced the third season premiere of the All Rise TV series. The drama was cancelled after two seasons on CBS and was later revived and renewed by the OWN cable channel. Season three premieres on Tuesday, June 7th.
The All Rise TV show stars Simone Missick, Wilson Bethel, Jessica Camacho, J. Alex Brinson, Ruthie Ann Miles, Lindsay Mendez, Lindsey Gort, and Marg Helgenberger. The recurring cast includes Samantha Marie Ware, Paul McCrane, and Suzanne Cryer. The series follows the chaotic, hopeful (and sometimes absurd) world of those who work at a courthouse in Los Angeles. At the center of this drama series is Lola Carmichael (Missick), a judge who was previously a highly regarded and impressive deputy district attorney. She depends on the counsel of people like her Deputy District Attorney Mark Callan (Bethel), Supervisory Judge Lisa Benner (Helgenberger), and pragmatic judicial assistant Sherri Kansky (Miles). Lola pushes the boundaries and challenges the expectations of what a judge can be and receives both support and pushback from those around her.
