HARRY’S LAW NBC PRESS RELEASE: Emmy Award–winning writer/producer David E. Kelley (“Boston Legal,” “The Practice,” “Ally McBeal”) weaves his rich storytelling into a new legal dramedy starring Academy Award winner Kathy Bates in the title role — about how people can embrace the unexpected and other curveballs that life can throw at them. Harriet “Harry” Korn (Kathy Bates, “Misery,” “About Schmidt”) doesn’t believe things happen for a reason, but she discovers that they sometimes do. A curmudgeonly ex-patent lawyer, Harry is abruptly fired from her blue-chip law firm, forcing her to search for a fresh start. She finds it when her world unexpectedly collides, literally, with Malcolm Davies (Aml Ameen, “Kidulthood”), a kind-hearted college student who desperately needs Harry’s help with his pending court case and he subsequently goes to work for her. Harry soon finds her balance as well as new offices in an abandoned shoe store just as legal hotshot Adam Branch (Nate Corddry, “The United States of Tara,” “Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip”) accidentally hits her while driving. Inspired by Harry’s no-nonsense understanding of the law, Adam decides to take leave of his shiny corporate firm to work with her. Harry, Adam and Malcolm, unlikely but kindred spirits — along with the help of Harry’s shoe-savant assistant, Jenna (Brittany Snow, “Hairspray,” “American Dreams”), are now ready for whatever walks in through the doors of their unique establishment “Harriet’s Law and Fine Shoes.” “Harry’s Law” is produced by Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with David E. Kelley Productions and Warner Bros. Television. David E. Kelley (“Boston Legal,” “The Practice”) and Bill D’Elia (“Boston Legal,” “The Practice”) serve as executive producers. D’Elia also serves as director.
I spoke with KATHY BATES and DAVID E. KELLEY about HARRY’S LAW which premiers on NBC on January 17th at 10 PM EST. It was an honor to speak with both of them and I am happy that Kathy will be back on my television screen on a weekly basis. I really enjoyed her as Betina in “Six Feet Under”. I know everyone has a bunch of favorite Kathy Bates character, so which one is yours? The cast of HARRY’S LAW is remarkable and David E. Kelley never lets us down with his unmistakable writing style, character development and witty storylines. Don’t miss the premiere of HARRY’S LAW on NBC.
