On Wednesday night, CBS will premiere their new drama series The Defenders. Another legal drama, you say? Maybe, but between the cast and the setting, this one could stand out from the pack.
The Defenders stars Jim Belushi and Jerry O’Connell, who play attorneys in Las Vegas. When they’re not trying to fix their clients’ messes, they’re making some of their own. Below is CBS’ synopsis for the series and further down is a really brief clip from the premiere episode.
THE DEFENDERS is a drama about two colorful Las Vegas defense attorneys who go all-in when it comes to representing their clients. Nick and Pete are the local go-to guys with an eclectic client list who are still looking to hit their own jackpot. Leading the law firm of Morelli & Kaczmarek are Nick Morelli, an earnest, hard-charging attorney who represents his clients to the best of his ability, no matter how big or small the case; and his partner, Pete Kaczmarek, whose passion for the law is matched only by his love of fast cars, beautiful women and expensive clothes.
The Defenders premieres Wednesday, Sept. 22, 2010 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT) on CBS.
