The Law Firm A New Reality TV Show Announced

May 05, 2005 11:15 PM by Joe Blackmon

NBC has announced a new reality TV show called The Law Firm will premiere on Wednesday, July 27 at 9P.M. ET.  "The Law Firm" is an eight-episode alternative drama series from multiple Emmy Award-winning producer David E. Kelley that features real lawyers competing against each other while trying actual court cases with in front of real judges and juries — resulting in outcomes that are final, legal and binding for the parties.

Premier trial attorney and legal analyst Roy Black is the managing partner of "The Law Firm," which is executive-produced by Kelley ("The Practice," "Ally McBeal," "L.A. Law"), David Garfinkle ("Surreal Life," "Blind Date"), Jay Renfroe ("Surreal Life," "Blind Date"), Jonathan Pontell ("Ally McBeal," "Boston Public") and Robert Breech ("The Practice," "L.A. Law").

As managing partner, Black will decide which of the 12 "legal eagles" will be eliminated in each episode. Smart, strong-willed and fiercely competitive, the attorneys work together in different teams each week, battling tight deadlines, intense pressure and even each other as they strategize, prepare and try their cases. The compelling cases include First Amendment issues, wrongful death cases and neighbor disputes, among others. Distinguished judges will decide some of the cases, while a jury determines the others. In the end, the top attorney will win a prize of $250,000. "The Law Firm" is produced by Renegade 83 Productions in association with David E. Kelley Productions and 20th Century Fox Television.

    I haven’t heard anything about The Apprentice lawyers being on the show, but it is by the same network that airs The Apprentice so you never know.

    I am sorry that some people would prefer to pretend to be a lawyer rather than representing clients. I do not plan to watch. I get to play reality t.v. everyday.
    Being a lawyer is my life. Hopefully, it will be an educational tool for the viewers. If I hear that, I will watch!

    I want to know that answer to the question too!! I know the lyrics go- “Light up, light up, as if you had a choice. Baby I can hear your voice- I’ll be coming home to you.” Something like that. I put in it for search on google, but nothing comes up. Someone please help. Thanks!! :)

    I found the answer to my own question. The theme song is, “Run,” by Final Straw. It’s great!!

    Light up, light up
    As if you have a choice
    Even if you cannot hear my voice
    I’ll be right beside you dear
