NBC moves the debut of David E. Kelley's 'The Law Firm' reality series to July 28


By Reality TV World staff, 06/02/2005 

NBC has announced that it has tweaked its previously announced summer programming lineup, changing the premiere schedule for six of its upcoming reality series, including David E. Kelley's The Law Firm reality series.

Originally scheduled to debut on Wednesday, July 27 with back-to-back one-hour episodes, The Law Firm will now premiere a day later on July 28 where it will make its home in the vacant 9PM ET/PT time period of NBC's biggest reality series -- The Apprentice.

First announced last summer, The Law Firm was created by former long-time reality TV basher David E. Kelly -- the legendary television producer responsible for scripted hits like The Practice, Boston Public, Ally McBeal, Chicago Hope, Picket Fences, and L.A. Law.

Featuring real lawyers that are competing against each other while trying actual court cases with in front of real judges and juries, The Law Firm will result in outcomes that (similar to the long-running syndicated The People's Court) are final, legal and binding for the parties.

Similar to The Apprentice series in whose time period that it will air (a fact that no doubt didn't go unnoticed by NBC), The Law Firm will follow twelve lawyers overseen by "managing partner" Roy Black, one of the country's premier trial lawyers. Working in different teams every week, the attorneys will battle tight deadlines, intense pressure and even each other as they strategize, prepare and try their cases. While juries or "distinguished judges" will decide each case, only Trump Black will determine which lawyers get fired eliminated in each episode, with the "last lawyer standing" winning a $250,000 cash prize.

Produced by Renegade 83 Productions (The Surreal Life, Blind Date) in association with David E. Kelley Productions and 20th Century Fox Television, The Law Firm is executive-produced by Kelley, David Garfinkle, Jay Renfroe, Jonathan Pontell, and Robert Breech.
