Another great but short-lived program

My current favorite TV show is "The Practice" created by David Kelley. But another talented person from the Steven Bochco School of Great TV is Thomas Carter who created this pre-cursor to "The Practice." "Equal Justice" told the intertwining stories of lawyers in the District Attorney's office of an unnamed (but highly resembling Philadelphia) NorthEastern US City. It boasted wonderful, gritty writing mixed with just the right amount of humor and pathos. And was beautifully acted by a cast that included Sarah Jessica Parker, Jane Kaczmarek (Malcolm in the Middle), Barry Miller (Fame [the movie]) and Joe Morton, a gifted character actor who has been in numerous TV and movie projects.

Every now and then you can catch the pilot TV movie re-run on local TV. If you happen to see it listed on your local guide, I encourage you to check it out. Unfortunately, it did not get the following it deserved and was cancelled after one season, and that's really too bad. It was one of those shows that everybody says there should be more of on television, yet does not catch the viewers attention.
