Storyline

Close to Home is a legal drama that tears away the facade of suburbia to reveal that sometimes quiet and tranquil streets can hide the darkest of crimes. Annabeth Chase is a young, aggressive prosecutor with a perfect conviction record who tries the cases that come out of her own neighborhood. Returning to work after having her first child, Annabeth is ready to take on the most difficult cases, fueled by her passion to protect her community and her family. Challenging Annabeth's legal strategies is her new boss, Maureen Scofield, a no-nonsense lawyer not afraid to push her hard. Leading the team is Steve Sharpe, who is one of Annabeth's biggest supporters but is concerned about how her cases will play in the media. Annabeth's husband, Jack, is devoted to their family and is a rock for her to lean on when the challenges of her job start to infringe on their home life. Written by SoMeONe

the best prime time drama of the fall
16 October 2005 | by (vancouver,canada) – See all my reviews

Well... first when i heard of this show, i thought that this will be a mixture of CSI and Law and Order. When i heard that Jennifer Finnigan will be playing the lead in the series i thought that she will bring the "soap opera" acting in this show. But when i saw the show i was proved wrong. Jennifer Finnigan plays a brilliant lawyer and a mother of a child. When i saw her acting i realized that she has forgotten all about the soap acting and created a new taste in her acting. In the start of the show, she is taking care of her new baby and her career as a lawyer and struggling to maintain both jobs at a good position. Her husband is played by the former Angel's villain Christian Kane. He is a loving husband and is helping his wife to maintain her job and take care of their baby. CBS has done a great job of picking up this show and taking actors who are best for this show. This show should continue for many seasons and all of my friends loved it. I recommend it to everyone to watch it.
