AIRED:
What happens when a bright and beautiful female attorney joins an inner-city Los Angeles law firm run by a ready-to-retire patriarch and his two bickering sons? Sparks! Two polar-opposite brothers manage the law firm of Sparks, Sparks & Sparks, founded by their father Alonzo Sparks While each son is dedicated to the family profession, the flashy, womanizing Maxey is just as interested in the pursuit of beautiful young women as he is in the pursuit of justice, while younger brother Greg is serious, straitlaced and a seeker of the high road. Imagine their surprise when the one thing the brothers find they can agree on is their mutual affection for Wilma Cuthbert, the Stanford Law graduate who Greg has just hired to join Sparks, Sparks and Sparks as the firm's only associate -- after an extensive three-year search. Both brothers vie for her affections, but Wilma -- caught up in the jitters of a stressful new job and an engagement to a high-profile sports figure -- basketball star Jason Kidd -- is oblivious to either brother's interest.moreless

  • The pilot episode of the sitcom "Sparks" takes place in Los Angeles and shows a young Terrence Howard as Greg Sparks and his older brother Maxey is played by Miguel Nunez, Jr. It's a funny departure from the ultra-seriousness of other law shows.moreless

    Stars James Avery ( to all Fresh Prince of Bel-Air fans, Uncle Phil) as Alonzo Sparks, a lawyer whom has his two competitive sons Maxey and Greg (played by Miguel Nunez, Jr and a young Terrence Howard) on his staff as partners. The office is kept intact by wise cracking Patrice (Kym Whitley) and the competition between the brothers is taken up a notch with the hire of Stanford law grad Wilma (Robin Givens), whom has caught the eye of both brothers. Wilma, oblivious to the intentions of the brothers in the beginning, begans to develop an attraction to Maxey in the latter parts of the show's run.moreless
