Fairly Legal creator and executive producer Michael Sardo remembers exactly when he realized he had found his leading lady.

"I had seen 90 women when Sarah Shahi came in. When the casting director pulled out a pretend gun in the audition scene, they all backed up," Sardo tells TVGuide.com.  "Sarah's audition started, the casting director pulled out the fake gun, and she leaned in.

Fearlessness was an important prerequisite for the role of mediator Kate Reed, the center of USA's new drama, Fairly Legal. After the sudden death of her father, both her mentor and best friend, Kate agrees to work for her difficult stepmother (Virginia Williams) to help keep her father's law firm afloat.
