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.
