US legal drama All Rise begins next month on new channel FOX One.
Go inside the chaotic, hopeful and sometimes absurd lives of judges, prosecutors and public defenders as they work with bailiffs, clerks and cops to get justice for the people of Los Angeles amidst a flawed legal process.
ALL RISE stars Simone Missick as newly appointed Judge Lola Carmichael, an idealistic former prosecutor who immediately starts pushing the boundaries and challenging the expectations of what a judge can be.
ALL RISE also stars Wilson Bethel as Deputy District Attorney Mark Callan, a member of the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office and best friend of Lola Carmichael. Jessica Camacho as Emily Lopez a member of the Los Angeles County Public Defender’s office who is in the process of divorcing her husband whom she has a restraining order against.
J. Alex Brinson as Deputy Sheriff Luke Watkins, a four-year veteran bailiff who plans to leave the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department and become a lawyer upon the completion of his law degree. Ruthie Ann Miles as Sherri Kansky, an experienced judge’s assistant assigned to new Judge Lola Carmichael. Lindsay Mendez as Sara Castillo, a court reporter and friend of Emily Lopez. Marg Helgenberger as Judge Lisa Benner, a veteran judge and mentor to Lola Carmichael.
On her first day as a judge, Lola Carmichael (Missick) decides not to accept a plea deal after public defender Emily Lopez argues that the arresting officer, Detective Jackie Leyland, framed her client Daphne Rivas for theft; after being pressured by the police chief not to charge Leyland, Judge Carmichael instead forces both the defence and the prosecution to submit new evidence. Meanwhile DDA Mark Callan is set to try a man accused of robbery who insists on representing himself.
All Rise premieres Tuesday, November 12 at 7.30pm (AEDT) on FOX ONE.
