ABC’s midseason “In Justice” offers a completely new take to the procedural drama: Rather than merely catching the bad guys, this group of young lawyers and investigators catch the bad guys and free the good!
Focusing on cases of justice run amok, cases in which an innocent person has been wrongly convicted of a crime, the team from the National Justice Project approach their work like a puzzle — a puzzle that’s been put together wrong. Their task is to take the pieces apart and reassemble the puzzle correctly, in the process identifying the truly guilty and freeing the innocent.
These modern-day heroes are not naï¿½ve crusaders. They’re led by David Swayne (Kyle MacLachlan, “Twin Peaks,” “Sex and the City,”), an attorney of questionable ethics but unquestionable talent, and by his chief investigator, Charles Conti (Jason O’Mara, “The Agency”), a former cop who’s willing to put up with Swayne’s idiosyncrasies in order to make sure that justice is done.
In addition to MacLachlan and O’Mara, “In Justice” also stars Marisol Nichols (“Blind Justice”), Constance Zimmer (:Good Morning Miami”) and Daniel Cosgrove (“Beverly Hills 90210”).
Executive producers on the series are Robert King, Michelle King, Stu Bloomberg and Jeff Melvoin. “In Justice” is from Touchstone Television.
