Girls Club


Girls Club Information

Girls Club (sometimes styled in all-lowercase) is an American television series created by David E. Kelley that was shown on Fox in the United States in October 2002. It is often compared to Ally McBeal, another series created by Kelley, which ended in May 2002.

Plot

Three young, female lawyers share a deep friendship and a common desire to leave their mark on the legal system. After graduating, they move to San Francisco where they find employment in the same law firm called Myers, Berry, Cherry & Fitch. There, the women attempt to break through the barriers of the male-dominated workforce. In describing the concept of girls club Kelley said, "I'm looking to capture both the nerves of a young associate and also the gender politics that go on inside big corporate law firms."

Production

Fox added Girls Club to its Monday night schedule for Fall 2002 sight-unseen based on the success of creator David E. Kelley's previous series. At the time of its cancellation six of the thirteen episodes ordered had been completed. Only two episodes were broadcast on Fox in the United States and on CH in Canada. In Latin America girls club was advertised, but never aired.

Reception

The series was consistently the lowest-rated show in the 18"49 demographic in its time slot, with The WB's Everwood and UPN's Girlfriends faring better. In a mid-season poll of favorite TV shows conducted by the magazine Electronic Media, Girls Club placed as the third worst show of the season.

Episode list

The initial order was for 13 episodes. When the series was cancelled after the airing of the second episode production was completed on the sixth episode, the seventh and eight were in production, and the script for the ninth episode had been written.
