Last night was the premiere of The Firm, a series based upon following the characters from John Grisham’s bestselling novel a decade later. At NBC’s website, you can watch the first episode if you missed it. Here’s the download:
As a young associate, Mitch McDeere (Josh Lucas) brought down a prestigious Memphis law firm which operated as a front for the Chicago mob, and his life was never the same. After a difficult decade, which included a stay in the Federal Witness Protection program, Mitch and his family re-surface in Washington D.C. where Mitch joins a white-shoe firm, wife Abby (Molly Parker) starts a new career as a schoolteacher, and daughter Claire (Natasha Calis) struggles to adjust. Coming to the new firm with Mitch is his feisty receptionist Tammy Hemphill (Juliette Lewis) plus her occasional boyfriend and occasional investigator, Mitch’s brother, Ray McDeere (Callum Keith Rennie), who served time for manslaughter. They’re emerging from isolation to reclaim their lives and their futures, only to find that past dangers are still lurking and new threats are everywhere.
Grisham is also serving as Executive Producer of the series, and here’s a short clip from the first episode. If you watched it, what did you think? If you missed it, are you likely to add it to your queue?
