TV show description:
This dramatic television series revolves around the symbiotic relationship between a charismatic defense attorney and a powerhouse TV producer as they attempt to control the media, the justice system, and each other. Together, they make great TV and determine the nation’s headlines.
A driven professional, Julia George (Piper Perabo) is the producer of the number one cable TV news program in the country, Louise Herrick Live (LHL). She doesn’t just control the nation’s headlines, she owns them. She’s squeaky clean on paper, but fights in the mud when necessary.
A brilliant broadcaster, Louise Herrick (Kate Jennings Grant) hosts her own top-rated show but her behind-the-scenes antics cause trouble wherever she goes.
An eager-to-please production assistant, Ryan Mills (Ryan Guzman) is also the son of the network president. He’ll do whatever it takes to climb the ladder at LHL. Megan Byrd (Sepideh Moafi) is a street-smart journalism school grad who’s responsible for scheduling and managing LHL guests.
Charismatic and sexy, defense attorney Jake Gregorian (Daniel Sunjata) will manipulate the media and public opinion to win his cases at any cost. He might seem invulnerable, but he has a soft spot for Julia and he relies on her — both professionally and personally.
His brother is high-powered defense attorney Bradley Gregorian (J. August Richards). They inherited their father’s law firm. They represent the rich and powerful and are experts at using the media to exonerate their clients in the court of public opinion.
Also working at the firm is book-smart attorney Ella Benjamin (Aimeé Teegarden). Fresh out of law school, Ella is a straight shooter and zealous about getting ahead in her career.
Oscar Keaton (Kevin Zegers) is a billionaire playboy and a social media mogul.
Episode #10 – Taken
When Julia is mistakenly taken hostage by Mexican cartel leader Carlos Mora (guest star Jose Zuniga), Jake and LHL take extreme measures to ensure her safe return. Mora says he will release her and a fellow journalist if she produces an interview that would advance his propaganda.
First aired: December 8, 2016.
