Civil Wars

Civil Wars Information

Civil Wars is an American legal drama that aired on ABC from November 1991 to March 1993. The series was produced by Steven Bochco, known for his work on NYPD Blue, L.A. Law and Hill Street Blues. After a brief syndicated run on the FX Network in the mid 90s, the series has not aired since.


The series focused on the lives and cases of New York City divorce attorneys. It had a famously misanthropic opening credits sequence; in it, romantic photo albums were shown as the voice track played couples ripping into each other in court, as each of the show's principal attorneys interrogated them, one by one, on the stand.


Two of the characters lived on longer than the show itself. After Civil Wars was cancelled, Eli Levinson (Rosenberg) and Denise Iannello (Mazar) were transplanted to the final season of L.A. Law. This was despite the fact that the shows aired on different networks (L.A. Law aired on NBC).
