Fairly Legal soon

Sarah Shahi stars as a top litigator who has grown frustrated with bureaucracy and decides to become the ultimate 'anti-lawyer' - a mediator.

Seven is set to premiere US drama Fairly Legal soon.

The series Sarah Shahi (The L Word) as Kate Reed, a top litigator who has grown frustrated with bureaucracy and injustice and decides to become the ultimate ‘anti-lawyer’ – a mediator.

Expect this one to replace either Pictures of You or Desperate Housewives, both of which are ending soon.

The 2011 series has been renewed to 2012 for the USA Network.

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).

  1. Season 2 has just finished in the US, once again Australian Free to Air is far too slow showing something new. Instead we have to put up with endless repeats of mediocre shows instead of having something new to watch.

  2. Unfortunately this show isn’t as good as I expected. Although mildy enjoyable, it’s rather lightweight and fluffy, much in the style of Royal Pains. It’s certainly nowhere near as clever or witty as Desperate Housewives, and it would be a poor fit for that show’s timeslot.

    The best thing about Fairly Legal is Sarah Shahi; she’s an appealing actress whose looks and personality remind me of Sandra Bullock.

  3. Anything by USA Network is a hit in my opinion so I’ll definitely be giving it a shot – even if Australian FTA networks seem to only put them on either late night slots on primary channels or on digital channels in mass repeats (as can be seen with Burn Notice on ONE).
