Set in the Southern District of New York Federal Court, brand new lawyers work for both the defense and the prosecution as they handle the most high profile and high stakes cases in the country - all as their personal lives intersect.
Jasmin Savoy Brown,
A look at the professional and personal lives of some of the military's brightest legal minds in the courtroom, where each attorney is trained as a prosecutor, a defense lawyer, an investigator - and a Marine.
Starting over isn't easy, especially for John Nolan who, after a life-altering incident, is pursuing his dream of joining the LAPD. As their oldest rookie, he's met with skepticism from those who see him as just a walking midlife crisis.

Clearly the writers are operating from the far left side of the political spectrum, even though there are also plenty of legal injustices on the center and right. Innocent people do not come from just one side of the spectrum.
Most offensive are the periodic attempts to make heinous behavior like infanticide seem sympathetic or even justified. As if dumping a baby in the trash before it takes a breath outside the womb makes it OK and legally justifiable. Sad and sympathetic, certainly, but to use that to try to split hairs on legality and thus rightness is something only the most rabid pro-abortionists could endorse. Certainly not innocent, as the series title implies.
