Haven’t heard of Franklin & Bash? That’s okay, until today we hadn’t either. After reading Saved by the Bell Alum Mark Paul Gosselaar’s tweets, we come to find out it’s a new show on TNT starring MPG and Brecken Meyer. Thought it could be slow at times, I was a fan of TNT’s Raising the Bar and was disappointed when I saw it was canceled. I think MPG was great in a show that had some richly developed characters. It didn’t take long for MPG to hop right back on the legal drama train though and, it seems, will be playing a character very similar to the one he played on RTB. From what it sounds like, this one might be a little more light-hearted than RTB.
In Franklin & Bash, two young, fly-by-the-seat-of-their-pants street lawyers cause a seismic culture clash when they join a legendary, button-down law firm. Meyer plays Jared Franklin, who has a knack for connecting with jury and judge. Gosselaar is Steven Bash, who loves sticking it to authority every chance he gets.
TNT has reportedly ordered 10 episodes of Franklin & Bash, which is scheduled to premiere in June of 2011. You can head on over to Daemon’s TV to see more images from the show.
