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

Quite a good show
13 April 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I really enjoy this show. It is the perfect lead into Numb3rs because they are both crime/justice shows taken from a different angle. I love how this show is set in Indianapolis. Im sick and tired of NY and LA shows. There are so many other great cities to set the show in. I have been a big fan of Jennifer Finnigan after seeing her on the short lived show Committed.

I don't see why people are criticizing it so much. Of course this show isn't Law and Order, but what is. Its a very enjoyable show with good acting and fun plot lines. I like how they use takeoffs of story lines that actually happen in Indianapolis.

I recommend this show to everyone.
