Young lawyers test their mettle
For The People, Universal Channel, Thursday at 8.30pm
SET in the US District Court, also known as ‘The Mother Court’, this new series follows six talented young lawyers working on opposite sides of the law and handling the most high-profile federal cases in the country.
Best friends Sandra Bell (Britt Robertson, pictured) and Allison Adams (Jasmin Savoy Brown) serve as public defenders alongside Jay Simmons and their boss, Federal Public Defender Jill Carlan.
Judge Nicholas Byrne rules on some of the court’s most controversial cases and Tina Krissman is the formidable clerk of the court who keeps everyone in line.
These young lawyers will be put to the test both personally and professionally as their lives intersect in and out of the United States’ most prestigious trial court.
