Five first-year associates are thrown into "the deep end" at a prestigious L.A. law firm in the pilot of this legal drama.

The firm's managing partners represent a dichotomy — Billy Zane's character goes by The Prince of Darkness while Clancy Brown's is pushing for sainthood. Lawyers, start your briefs. — Fred Mitchell
