It seems it’s official. The USA drama Fairly Legal has been renewed for a second season. This isn’t surprising as the show debuted to solid ratings and cast members Sarah Shahi and Michael Trucco were scheduled to appear at today’s upfronts.
“Fairly Legal” centers on Kate Reed (Sarah Shahi), a top litigator who has grown frustrated with the endless bureaucracy and injustice she has witnessed on a daily basis and decides to become the ultimate anti-lawyer — a mediator.
Using her knowledge of the law, along with intuition and a whatever-it-takes approach to resolve conflict, Kate finds the middle ground for a wide variety of adversaries — from Fortune 500 corporations to bitter divorcees. Following the unexpected death of her father, she finds herself at odds with her new boss, her stepmother (Virginia Williams) — and back in bed with her lawyer/ ex-husband (Michael Trucco).
Helping her keep all of this chaos at bay is her trusted, geek-chic assistant Leonardo (Baron Vaughn).
“Fairly Legal” is produced by Universal Cable Productions. Michael Sardo is the executive producer/creator/writer and Steve Stark is the executive producer.
I enjoyed this show and am glad to see it has been renewed. Are you a Fairly Legal fan?
