A Nice Legal Drama That Got Pulled Too Soon
18 October 2012 | by madbandit20002000See all my reviews

Normally I don't care for TV legal dramas. They're well written, but not all that interesting to me, unless it's an aspect on the "Law & Order" shows. However, I decided to give the fish-out-of-water "Made In Jersey" a chance. Besides, I was a background actor in the pilot and another episode.

However, neither the TV network nor audiences gave it a chance, having aired only two episodes.

By chance any new episodes air on Saturdays or the show ends up on a Made-On-Demand DVD box set, the premise involves former Trenton prosecutor Martina Garretti (Brit Janet Montgomery of "Our Idiot Brother" and "Human Target", nicely sporting a light urban American accent) helping average people as a defense attorney at a high-level law firm managed by blue blood Donovan Stark (Kyle MacLachan of "Twin Peaks"). Despite sneers from fellow lawyers, Garetti has paralegal Cyndi Vega (Toni Trucks) and shamus River Brody (Felix Solis of "NYC 22") on her side.

Created by Dana Calvo (wrote some episodes of "Studio 60"), "Made In Jersey" could have been interesting, having a blue-collar type working hard in the space of upper-class professionals while deconstructing the Jersey Girl stereotype. Instead, said stereotype rules on crappy reality shows. What a pity
