TV show description:
Eli Stone (Jonny Lee Miller) seems to have it all. He’s a successful attorney in San Francisco and the fiance to beautiful Taylor Wethersby (Natasha Henstridge); the daughter of the senior partner of his firm, Jordan Wethersby (Victor Garber).
Eli works hard to help the firm’s wealthy corporate clients become even richer, benefiting both himself and his future father-in-law. But one evening, Eli’s future becomes hazy when rockstar George Michael appears in his living room, singing his trademark song “Faith.”
This hallucination is the first of many and Eli turns to his physician and brother Nathan (Matt Letscher) and acupuncturist Dr. Chen (James Saito) for answers. Nathan delivers the news that Eli is suffering from a brain aneurysm and his visions may be connected. But Dr. Chen believes that Eli’s hallucinations may have more of a spiritual meaning, that he may be a prophet of God. Eli begins to revaluate is life and comes to the realization that he needs to make changes.
He starts by taking on cases of the very victims of the corporate clients that his law firm once represented. But these changes come with consequences and Eli must struggle to hold onto both his job and his fiancé. Also trying to endure and understand Eli’s strange behavior is his sassy assistant, Patti Dellacroix (Loretta Devine), and young associate, Maggie Dekker (Julie Gonzalo).
