The legal drama stars Katherine Heigl as Sadie Ellis, a brilliant attorney who starts to fall for her charismatic client, a surgeon (Steven Pasquale) accused of murdering his girlfriend. The cast also includes Dulé Hill, Laverne Cox, Elliot Gould, and Dreama Walker.
Rater told reporters the mystery surrounding Billy Brennan’s (Pasquale) guilt will be revealed:
You’re going to know whether or not he’s guilty or innocent. So, here’s what was interesting to us: The idea that you’re a guy who’s accused of something and arrested and you didn’t do it—from your point of view. And you’re stuck in jail—he was stuck in jail for four months—and his lifeline was Sadie. And they developed this deep friendship, this relationship that went beyond attorney-client, and that’s a line, do you know what I mean…and I’m like, what if the line is blurred? What if? All those ‘What if?’s came to play.”
