Title character Sebastian Stark is an L.A. hot-shot lawyer who leaves his lucrative career as a defender of rich criminals to try public prosecution under the District Attorney (D.A.), He forms a trial team of his own, consisting of young lawyers, like Casey Woodland, son of a legislator, who get a opportunity to learn straight from the master, if they can stand his hellish pace and walk the tight rope between respecting the law while using it and winning whatever it takes. A P.I. helps out digging up factual information. In nearly every episode a criminal is found out and put behind bars, after testing out tactics in Stark's private mock court, Sebastian often also has to deal with his daughter Julie, who surprisingly chose live with him rather than her mother in New York after their divorce.

An opening theme song and main title sequence were developed for for Season One. CBS instead decided to save that time to air commercials and listed the main cast members while the episode played. The theme song, entitled "Open Water" by the band Suicide Celebrity, was aired during overseas broadcasts of the program, but wasn't heard in America until the 2010 reruns aired on the ION network. The Season Two theme was an instrumental version of the song. See more »

James Wood plays that quick, no nonsense type of personality that gives credence to what real Prosecutors are like. Dig deep, get every tidbit of information you can before you go after the person being accused. That is what the real team does..they go to every person that the one accuse of doing the crime has had contact with and follow every lead until they are exhausted. No clue left unturned. I do believe this is going to an exciting series if given the chance. I realize there are many law and order type films out there, but this one seems to be more realistic. It not only goes into the court room, it goes into the life of the Prosecutor with his family and the problems that his profession has caused. Too many hours working, missing too many special occasions etc; I will continue to watch it unfold and see where it leads us.
