THE FIX, ABC’s Monday-night legal drama, is based (in its first season, at least) on a novel by Marcia Clark. Clark gained fame as the prosecutor in the real-life murder case against then-famed football player O.J. Simpson, accused of killing his wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ronald Goldman. Simpson was declared not guilty, though he subsequently lost a civil suit brought by the parents of the victims. Clark retired from prosecution and later went into private practice, as well writing books. She’s also one of the executive producers of THE FIX. In THE FIX, former assistant district attorney […]Read On »

Based on a novel by former prosecutor Marcia Clark, ABC’s new Monday-night drama THE FIX follows one particular investigation. Eight years ago, Los Angeles assistant district attorney Maya Travis (Robin Tunney) lost a double homicide case when she prosecuted celebrity Sevvy Johnson (Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje). (Any resemblance to Clark’s prosecution of O.J. Simpson is strictly intentional.) Now Sevvy may have commited a new murder, and even though Maya walked away from the legal profession after the earlier case, she’s back to take him on again. Breckin Meyer plays Maya’s boss, district attorney Alan Wiest. This isn’t Meyer’s first time at the […]Read On »

In ABC’s Tuesday night drama THE ROOKIE, Nathan Fillion plays the title character, John Nolan. Nolan joins the LAPD in his forties, which is highly unusual. Richard T. Jones plays Sergeant Wade Grey, who is vehemently opposed to Nolan joining the force, fearing that an older newcomer will be a distraction at best, a lethal danger at worst. In his own career, actor Jones is no rookie when it comes to playing law enforcement. He recently portrayed police detectives in WISDOM OF THE CROWD and AMERICAN HORROR STORY, an officer as a series regular on BROOKLYN SOUTH and a recurring […]Read On »

Brad Garrett plays Douglas Fogerty, one of the title characters in ABC’s Wednesday-night freshman comedy SINGLE PARENTS. A widower with twin daughters, Garrett’s Douglas is part of an informal community brought together by their children’s school.

ABC’s first-season Tuesday-night drama THE ROOKIE is based on a real person. Like Nathan Fillion’s character, John Nolan, a man in his forties who’d already had a career came from a small town in the Eastern U.S. to join the Los Angeles Police Department. Who is the real person? “I can’t tell you that,” says THE ROOKIE creator/executive producer Alexi Hawley. “He’s on the job, and he has only been on the job for a few years, and he is very focused on being a successful police officer.” Giving the officer’s real name, Hawley explains, could jeopardize the man’s job, […]Read On »
