TV show description:
A legal drama, the Doubt TV show follows Sadie Ellis (Katherine Heigl), a brilliant attorney at a boutique firm. Conflict arises when she starts to fall for her charismatic client.
Altruistic pediatric surgeon, Dr. Billy Brennan (Steven Pasquale), was recently accused of murdering his girlfriend, 24 years ago. Sadie struggles to keep their relationship strictly professional.
She must hide her growing feelings for Billy from everyone. Chief among them is close friend and colleague, Albert Cobb (Dulé Hill). Albert thinks he knows everything about Sadie, but that’s not the case.
Also working at the practice is Cameron Wirth (Laverne Cox). A transgender Ivy League grad, Cameron fights so passionately for her clients because she has experienced injustice first hand.
There is also Tiffany Simon (Dreama Walker), a second-year associate who is quickly learning the ropes from Wirth, as well as Nick Brady (Kobi Libii), a former felon who earned his degree while serving time.
The entire staff feels privileged to work for Isaiah Roth (Elliott Gould). The boss is not only a revered legal lion, but also a “lefty” legend. Roth’s approval is their highest goal.
Getting involved with her client could put Sadie’s career and happiness at risk — particularly if Billy is found guilty. She must work all the harder to prove reasonable doubt, even while she has some doubts of her own.
Episode #13 — The Return
After the jury delivers their verdict in Billy’s trial, Sadie learns he has a secret that might have impacted his case. Also, Billy uses a favor owed to his family by the governor and gets Carolyn released from prison, and Nick is charged with the murder and Isaiah and the firm rally around him to get him released.
First aired: August 12, 2017.
