USA WELCOMES NEW ORIGINAL SCRIPTED SERIES "FAIRLY LEGAL"
FAIRLY LEGAL is USA's newest original scripted series premiering on Thursday, January 20 at 10/9c. It centers on Kate Reed (Sarah Shahi), a top litigator fed up with the endless bureaucracy and daily injustices of the system, who takes a hard turn to become the ultimate anti-lawyer: a mediator. Using her legal savvy, street smarts and pull-no-punches approach to resolving conflict, Kate finds the middle ground for a wide variety of adversaries, from Fortune 500 corporations to bitter divorcees.
Recurring guest stars include [Stargate SG-1's] Richard Dean Anderson in the role of David Smith, a man who has a mysterious connection to Kate’s late father; Ethan Embry portrays Spencer, Kate’s younger brother and a new father; and Gerald McRaney as Judge Nicastro, who has no tolerance for Kate’s lack of regard for the legal establishment.
Other guest stars this season include Ken Howard as a clothing magnate whose son is due to inherit the family business; Peter MacNicol, one of the many judges that Kate comes in contact with during her many mediations; Belita Moreno, who was the trusted secretary to Kate's late father; and [Warehouse 13's] Eddie McClintock, the star of a cooking show, who finds himself in a dispute about his famous barbeque sauce. FAIRLY LEGAL also stars Michael Trucco, Virginia Williams and Baron Vaughn.
