This fine series in the same vein as 'L.A. Law' was largely a victim of the events surrounding its debut (and only) season.
Just as CBS began rolling out this project, Operation Desert Shield kicked off with US and ally troupes protecting Saudia Arabia from advancing Iraq. This meant on many a Wednesday night at 10pm, rather then seeing the antics inside WNDY's newsroom, viewers were met by Dan Rather and his support staff preempting the show with actual news.
This was the first US 'war' covered in real time by national news, so it is understandable that it naturally took precedent over entertainment programming.
Still, I kinda wish the network had found a way of giving it a second chance through either a new time slot, or the modern day advent of 'Summer Series.'
This show never found a following and limped its way through most of its produced episodes before being axed.
