TV show description:
From creators Craig Sweeny and Craig Turk, The Code TV show is a military legal drama. The series unfolds at the Judge Advocate General Headquarters in Quantico, Virginia and centers on the prosecutors, defense lawyers, and investigators who work on the legal challenges facing the U.S. Marine Corps.
A motivated man from a military family, Captain John “Abe” Abraham (Mitchell) has a passion for his work as a prosecutor and a deep sense of responsibility. His colleague, Captain Maya Dobbins (Wood) is a good friend, despite her position as the lead defense attorney. As dedicated as she is to the Corps and her clients, she is even more devoted to the truth.
Abe’s superior, Major Trey Ferry (Essandoh) is a dogged prosecutor who is relentless in the pursuit of suspects. Meanwhile, as one of the JAG’s highest-ranking women, commanding officer Colonel Glenn Turnbull (Delaney) expects nothing but the best from her staff. It’s her high standards for herself, however, that inspire their fierce loyalty.
Rounding out the team are Lt. Harper Li (Soo), a lawyer who is itching for a challenge, and Warrant Officer Rami Ahmadi (Barsoumian) who assists the lawyers in most aspects of their work.
As active-duty members of the U.S. Marines, these attorneys are duty and honor-bound to serve the country they love, as they seek military justice, both at home and abroad.
Episode #12 — Legit Bad Day
Abe’s colleagues must defend and reluctantly prosecute him when he is arrested and court-martialed for mutiny in regard to a 2010 mission in Afghanistan, where he was one of the only survivors.
First aired: July 22, 2019.
