The lawyers, split into two teams, will try real cases in an actual court where the outcomes are legally binding. The managing partner of “The Law Firm” is top trial attorney and legal analyst Roy Black, who decides which of the 12 will be eliminated in each episode. Though early on it was thought that Black would send home a lawyer from the losing team, much like in the "Apprentice," Black has announced that winning a case does not guarantee immunity. Black can send somone home from the winning team if he feels that player was the worst in that case. UPDATE: NBC pulled "The Law Firm" from the schedule after two weeks on the air.

From three-time Emmy-award winning executive producer Richard Appel ("The Simpsons," "King of the Hill") comes this footloose legal comedy about a new class of idealistic but all-too-human Assistant United States Attorneys who struggle to make their way in their personal lives while making a difference in the cases they prosecute every day in New York City. Adam Sullivan (Scott Foley, "Felicity") is a promising young A.U.S.A. whose intelligence is bound with a gullible nature that presents an uphill battle in his pursuit of both career and romantic success. At work, he must argue cases against Susan Rakoff (Amanda Detmer, "The Majestic"), a beautiful and savvy public defender who regards the A.U.S.A.'s as enemies of the people. Adam is also challenged by his reluctant supervisor Geoffrey Laurence (Peter Jacobson, "*61") and a wide-eyed paralegal Wally (John Ross Bowie, "Road Trip"), whose social ineptitude is matched only by his newfound devotion to Adam. Working alongside Adam as an Assistant U.S. Attorney is Ana Rivera (Ana Ortiz, NBC's "Kristin"), a former cop with the street experience to compensate for Adam's occasional naïveté. Also in Adam's life is his roommate Owen Harper (Eddie McClintock, NBC's "Stark Raving Mad"), a trusted friend who reminds Adam of the lighter side of life outside the world of federal prosecution.

    NBC
    The 60's is a made-for-TV miniseries developed by NBC that moves through the 1960s decade of social and political upheavals as it focuses on two distinct families, the Herlihys and the Taylors. The Herlihy family is a middle class family in Chicago whose hopes were for football scholarships, potential jobs, and marriages for their three children are thrown aside by the diverging paths. Their youngest, the shining Katie (Julia Stiles), becomes pregnant and leaves her family in the aftermath to follow the rock musician father (Donovan Leitch) to San Francisco in the psychedelic, flower-power upsurge in the West coast. Her oldest brother athletic Brian (Jerry O'Connell) joins the Marines when his scholarship to Notre Dame falls through and ends up becoming one of the scarred ghosts of veterans from the Vietnam War. Their intelligent brother Michael (Josh Hamilton) takes the peace rally approach, ultimately protesting and campaigning with politicians of the era's Democrats. The Taylors were a prominent and civil rights oriented family in the deep South but when the minister father was shot and killed, Emmet (Leonard Roberts) takes the opposite path of peaceful protests and joins the Black Panther group, often clashing violently with the police. The 60's acts as a retelling of all the potential lifestyles and paths anyone could have experienced during that period in American culture with an underscore of popular musical classics and remembrances of the historical events that shaped the nation.moreless

    "Space...The Final Frontier. These are the voyages of the Starship, Enterprise. Its 5-year mission: to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations, to boldly go where no man has gone before!"

    The series is set in the 23rd century where Earth has survived World War III then moved on to explore the stars. Humanity has allied with other alien races and formed the United Federation of Planets, and Starfleet serves as its exploratory and military branch. Captain James T. Kirk of the starship Enterprise explores the galaxy with a crew of 430 men and women, contacting new life forms, conducting diplomat missions, and exploring the unknown.

    Star Trek premiered on NBC after executive producer and creator Gene Roddenberry produced not one but two pilots to convince them of the quality of his show. The series ran two years but never achieved good ratings despite building a small but solid fan following. A letter-writing campaign convinced NBC to run a third season, but Roddenberry left in protest and the network buried the show in a late Friday night time slot.

    After its three-year run Star Trek began running syndication where it was discovered by legion of new fans and became a phenomenon. This led to an animated series, six movies, and four spin-off television shows. Despite its short network run, Star Trek has become one of the most successful shows in television history.

    Aside from its three main stars, Star Trek featured a large cast of reoccurring guest stars that includes James Doohan, Nichelle Nichols, George Takei, Walter Koenig, Majel Barrett, and Grace Lee Whitney. Other notable guest stars include Diana Muldaur, Gary Lockwood, Ricardo Montalban, Sally Kellerman, Julie Newmar, Frank Gorshin, John Colicos, Roger C. Carmel, William Campbell, Ted Cassidy, Michael Ansara and Elisha Cook, Jr. Notable writers for the series include Gene Roddenberry, Gene L.

    "This powerful one-hour family drama from executive producer John Wells (ER) and creator/supervising producer Matthew McNair Carnahan (Black Circle Boys) centers on the McCallisters, a working-class Irish-Catholic family from New York's Hell's Kitchen, whose five young-adult siblings lead contrasting lives and whose fierce loyalties are often pushed to the limit." "Capturing the compelling, poignant reality of familial relationships, the series stars Tate Donovan, Charlotte Ross, Justin Louis, Sam Trammell, Bonnie Root, Kim Raver, John Spencer and Jill Clayburgh." "Bobby (Justin Louis, Public Morals) an intense, ambitious police detective who works the streets of Hell's Kitchen, believes that his brother Liam (Tony Award nominee Sam Trammell, Ah Wilderness), an emerging union leader, works for a boss tied to organized crime. Also, to Bobby's dismay, his wife Clarissa (Kim Raver, Central Park West) maintains a suspiciously close relationship with Liam. Kevin McCallister (Tate Donovan, Warner Bros.' Friends and Hercules), a young parish priest, and the rest of the family concern themselves with the wild, self-destructive behavior of the youngest of the clan, Amanda (Bonnie Root, Home Invasion). Successful stockbroker and older sister Fiona's (Charlotte Ross, Days of Our Lives) long-term affair with her married boss wreaks havoc on her self-esteem. A sixth sibling [Mikey] died under mysterious circumstances years ago." "The tightly knit clan gathers weekly at the home of their parents, Eileen and Simon McCallister, for Sunday dinner -- putting aside conflicts and focusing on the unwavering love that's at the core of this family." (Warner Bros. press release) After four years of giving them huge audiences from that hospital show he helped bring to the small screen, NBC wanted John Wells to give them another rambling ensemble drama along the same lines -- and the same ratings. Wells latched on to a script from indie filmmaker Matthew McNair Carnahan, and chose this as his next project, claiming at the time that it was as different from ER as night and day. Wells also acknowledged that sudsy family dramas like Trinity have hardly ever been instant hits in the past -- as ER was and as NBC wanted -- and that, as a slow-building show, it needed a patient network who would give it time to develop an audience. Seems he momentarily forgot what network he sold it to. Trinity redefined slow-building (actually, it redefined reverse-building), and was yanked off the schedule at the beginning of November sweeps, three weeks after its belated premiere, two weeks after NBC's programming division underwent management changes. NBC stated they would make an announcement on its future by Christmas, but the coffin was sealed pretty much shut when reruns of Law & Order (incidentally, a slow-building show they somehow did manage to let grow) pulled bigger numbers. NBC never did make that announcement, and Warner Bros. stopped production four episodes early. The following season, John Wells took John Spencer, Kim Raver, Skipp Sudduth, Bobby Cannavale and a lot of the production crew with him -- and proved he wasn't a one-hit wonder. Right around the time Trinity dropped off the face of prime time, the programming chief who developed it, Warren Littlefield, was sent on his merry way. In January, 1999, a Littlefield-free NBC saw Trinity's Friday vacancy filled with a sudsy family drama called Providence. Which gave...well, you all know what came of that.
