Fall TV Preview: Introducing CBS's "The Defenders"

The Whole Truth isn't the only new courtroom drama on the block! The Defenders, which stars Jerry O'Connell and Jim Belushi, puts a Vegas spin on the classic legal series formula, and it looks like a pretty good time based on our exclusive preview! Read on to find out more about the new fall series:

Airs: Wednesdays at 10/9c on CBS

Notable Stars: Jim Belushi, Jerry O'Connell

Synopsis: Leading the law firm of Morelli & Kaczmarek are Nick Morelli (Jim Belushi), an earnest, hard-charging attorney who represents his clients to the best of his ability, and his partner, Pete Kaczmarek (Jerry O'Connell), whose passion for the law is matched only by his love of fast cars, beautiful women and expensive clothes. As Lady Luck shines on their legal careers, the partners have their hands full when it comes to their personal lives.

Why Watch? The title makes it sounds more like a Heroes spin-off than a legal drama, and compared to The Whole Truth, which will air at the same time on CBS, it's more of a comedy than a drama. However, it seems like may have more heart, scandal, excitement, and personal drama than its more procedural-based counterpart (after all, it takes place in Vegas), so it all depends on your courtroom series preference!
