Shannon's Deal

Show Summary

Once a successful corporate lawyer at a prestigious Philadelphia law firm, Jack Shannon lost his marriage and his job, due in part to a compulsive gambling habit. While Shannon maintains a good relationship with his daughter, his professional career has hit rock bottom. He becomes a general practioner of law, gaining a loyal secretary in Lucy Acosta when he manages to free her boyfriend from jail. Shannon also gains an unlikely investigator in Wilmer Slade, a verbose enforcer for one of the many loan sharks to whom Jack is in debt. Although he has sworn off gambling, Shannon continues to use his skill as a cardplayer to help him work out his cases, and he always tries to work out deals for his clients without having to go to court.

    The recent death of Elizabeth Pea caused me to remember this program and how much I liked it. The only television series ever created by legendary film director John Sayles, "Shannon's Deal" dealt with a lawyer Jack Shannon who lost everything due to his gambling addiction. Part of the program premise, was the Jack tried to settle cases out of court. The program also had guest writers and directors. Sadly only 16 episodes were ever made.moreless
