One thing about losing a few series to cancellation, there is always a new crop of new shows to take their place. This one, from David E. Kelley, the creator of Ally McBeal, Boston Legal and The Practice, seems to have all the elements of a potential hit. Harry’s Law stars Oscar winner Kathy Bates playing the title character, Harriet “Harry” Korn. It’s certainly one to check out when it premieres on January 17, 2011 on NBC. Here’s a promo clip to give you a look at what’s to come:
Here’s the show’s description:
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 who, 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 runs into her with his car. Inspired by Harry’s no-nonsense understanding of the law, Adam decides to take leave of his shiny corporate firm to go to work with her. Harry, Adam and Malcolm – unlikely but kindred spirits – along with Harry’s shoe-savant assistant, Jenna (Brittany Snow, “Hairspray,” “American Dreams”), are now ready for whatever walks through the doors of their unique establishment – “Harriet’s Law and Fine Shoes.”
