Trivia

In the pilot, Britne Oldford was cast as Sandra Black (renamed Bell) and Lyndon Smith was cast as Allison Anderson (renamed Adams). However, both roles were recast with other actresses. After reshooting the pilot with the actresses replacing Oldford and Smith, Britt Robertson and Jasmin Savoy Brown respectively, and having already shot the second episode, production on the show was temporarily shut down in mid-September 2017 in order to rewrite existing scripts for the rest of the season to adjust the show to Robertson and Brown's new dynamic.

Has a lot of promise!
29 March 2018 | by kellyrnedSee all my reviews

While it still has the same lecturing premise of all Shonda Rhimes' shows, this has a nice new spin to it with young, energetic, & power hungry junior lawyers who all want a place in the judicial system. This shows a lot of promise & I'm sticking with it!
