Sebastian Stark is a Los Angeles hot-shot lawyer, who leaves his lucrative career as a defender of rich criminals to try public prosecution under the District Attorney. He forms a trial team of his own, consisting of young lawyers, like Casey Woodland, son of a legislator, who get an 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 Private Investigator 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 to live with him, rather than her mother, in New York City, after their divorce.Written by
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, titled "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 Woods, a fabulous actor, has a major hit on his hands with the television show "Shark." He is just magnificent as a fast-talking, brilliant former defense attorney, who had a change of heart when he got a client off only for the latter to subsequently kill his wife.
As a divorced man, with a very precocious daughter, Woods is engaging as he gets his staff to battle crime literally. He is a forever driving force with his group. Nonetheless, his actions pay off.
Danielle Pannabaker co-stars as his daughter, very bright but not that perceptive. At the end of each show, the stories generally focus about her. The girl knows how to get in trouble. I hope that tragedy will not ensue.
Each week we are presented with a murder case. The obvious always doesn't pan out.
Where was an Emmy nomination for Woods last season?
