NBC Series Overview Based on the best-selling novel by world-renowned author John Grisham ("The Pelican Brief," "The Client"), "The Firm" is a new drama series that continues the story of attorney Mitchell McDeere (Josh Lucas, "The Lincoln Lawyer," "Sweet Home Alabama"), who, as a young associate 10 years earlier, had brought down the prestigious Memphis law firm of Bendini, Lambert & Locke, which had been operating as a front for the Chicago mob.
After a difficult decade, which included a stay in the Federal Witness Protection Program, McDeere and his family now emerge from isolation to reclaim their lives and their future -- only to find that past dangers are still lurking and new threats are everywhere.
Abby McDeere (Molly Parker, "Dexter," "Deadwood"), Mitch’s supportive, smart and resourceful wife, who had helped her husband expose Bendini, Lambert & Locke, is excited to start a new life in Washington, D.C., as a school teacher and mom to their daughter, Claire (Natasha Calis, "The Possession").
Ray McDeere (Callum Keith Rennie, "The Killing," "Californication") is Mitch's charming, yet volatile, older brother whose work as an investigator in Mitch's office is uniquely informed by his past stretch in prison for manslaughter. Despite a gritty past that stands in stark contrast to that of his Harvard-grad brother, Ray shares one key quality with Mitch – a loyalty that is unbreakable.
Tammy Hemphill (Juliette Lewis, "Natural Born Killers," "Cape Fear") is Mitch's feisty, sexy receptionist whose work life is made all the more tumultuous by her on-again, off-again relationship with Ray. With a personality as arresting as her ever-changing hair color, Tammy is leery when Mitch accepts a deal to partner with a top law practice, as she’s not cut out for the conservative culture of a white-shoe firm.
"The Firm" is produced by Entertainment One (eOne Television) in association with Sony Pictures Television Networks and Paramount Pictures. The executive producers are Grisham, Lukas Reiter (NBC's "Law & Order," "Boston Legal"), John Morayniss ("Haven," "Hung"), Michael Rosenberg ("Hung," "The Riches") and Noreen Halpern ("Rookie Blue," "Call Me Fitz"). David Straiton ("House," "Fringe") directed the two-hour premiere episode. Helen Shaver ("Judging Amy," NBC's "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit") has also joined the series as a co-executive producer and director.
