NBC’s The Firm, premiering in January, is based on the John Grisham best-seller (turned Tom Cruise movie), but picks up with the characters some 10 years later. Having disappeared into the Witness Protection Program after taking down Bendini, Lambert & Locke, legal eagle Mitch and his wife Abby — played by Josh Lucas (The Lincoln Lawyer) and Molly Parker (Deadwood) — are poised to restart their lives, in Washington, D.C., only to find that past dangers as well as new threats loom.
Judging by the second promo here, Battlestar Galactica alum Tricia Helfer, playing a law firm boss who hires Mitch as a senior partner, falls into the latter category.
The Firm kicks off with a two-hour premiere on Sunday, Jan, 8, before moving to Thursdays at 10 pm. Will you be checking it out?
