Steven Bochco's provocative courtroom thriller began as a seasonlong investigation of one L.A. murder case. The series was originally intended by ABC to compete with NBC's `ER,' and it should have been a big success: Exceptional acting and taut, gripping scripts won it critical accolades (but alas, not many viewers). When `Murder One' returned for its second year, the number of storylines increased from one to three and Anthony LaPaglia replaced Daniel Benzali as lead defense lawyer.
