The Paper Chase

Show Summary

Based on the movie, which was based on the novel written by John Jay Osborn, The Paper Chase is a classroom drama about students in an Eastern U.S. Law School (Harvard, although it's precise location isn't mentioned in the series). The two main characters are: Charles W. Kingsfield, a stern and demanding contract law professor; and James T. Hart, a student who idolizes him. The Paper Chase was voted the best new drama of 1978. Although the critics raved, the original series didn't get the viewing numbers that CBS wanted and it was canceled after its first season in 1979. Four years later, the Showtime premium cable channel picked it up and made three new seasons of episodes from 1983 to 1986.
