This pilot for a Fox television series, based on the novel by Scott Turow, was tragically not selected for production. Bastards.

John Larroquette has been cast for Pleading Guilty. Here's the link to the full interview/article on John Larroquette:

http://popwatch.ew.com/2010/03/24/john- ... ng-guilty/
John Larroquette has joined Jason Isaacs in the Fox legal thriller pilot Pleading Guilty, based on the Scott Turow novel. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Larroquette will play the “patrician managing partner” of a high-powered law firm that recruits Isaacs’ character, a cop-turned-attorney, who investigates the disappearance of its top litigator. Translation: Probably not as wacky as his stint on Boston Legal — which ended with him and Candice Bergen in a double wedding with James Spader and William Shatner — but chances are he’ll still be pretty charismatic.
Who else is psyched to see Larroquette suit up again, and, we hope, verbally spar with Isaacs?
Hooroo,

The casting is great, with the handsome Jason in the lead! What more could we ask for?
(..and JI goes from Malfoy to Malloy, Lucius gets out of Azkaban and becomes a lawyer XD)

I was a big fan of Night Court and loved John Larroquette since then. Great casting on this pilot.

PLEADING GUILTY (FOX) - Melinda McGraw ("Hank") has scored a role on the drama pilot, about Mack Malloy (Jason Isaacs), an ex-cop and recovering alcoholic now serving as a partner in a top-drawer corporate law firm. She'll play Elise, Mack's ex-wife with whom he shares a teenager daughter, Carrie (yet to be cast). John Larroquette, Madchen Amick and Omid Abtahi co-star in the 20th Century Fox Television-based hour, which Jon Avnet is helming off a script by Jason Tracey.

The casting is getting better and more impressive. Fingers crossed the pilot is impressive and accepted. It's been a while since there was a serious show on tv about lawyers (discounting Boston Legal) LOL.
