Storyline

Peter Bash and Jared Franklin are young, fly-by-the-seat-of-their-pants lawyers and partners in the law firm Franklin & Bash. Their nontraditional approach to the legal profession keeps things interesting in the office and the courtroom. The duo's use of questionable legal tactics draws the attention of Stanton Infeld, partner of the prominent law firm of Infeld Daniels. He makes an offer for them to work for him with a promise of certain creative liberty. With work and play frequently intermingling, days and nights are anything but traditional when spending time with Franklin & Bash. Written by TNT Publicity

A pair of Dial-A-Shyster lawyers
4 November 2017 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

This pilot episode of Franklin&Bash has our two guys as a pair of Dial- A-Shyster lawyers who are the last word in ambulance chasing. Breckin Meyer and Mark-Paul Gosselaar are those selfsame attorneys whose cut up antics have drawn reproof from the stodgier members of the profession.

One of the leading members of the Los Angeles bar is Malcolm McDowell who invites them to his firm. They take the offer providing they can keep doing their own cases in their own way. What McDowell saw in court was them taking advantage of a most prurient judge's interest in the female anatomy.

These two play that judge like a piccolo. But when they draw the humorless Kathy Najimy a change in tactics is ordered and supplied.

Enjoyable pilot, wish this series was still running.
