A departure from the typical law office setting, the series is an hour procedural set in the fast paced world of a legal aid office in New York City. Fighting for clients who can’t afford to choose their lawyers, the show follows Gwen Sullivan (Ash), an opinionated and wildly outspoken attorney whose passion for her job and clients make her arguably the most talented Public Defender in her district. Along with the complicated cases she tackles in a hurried environment, she must also manage the various distractions at the office, including Charlie, (Keyes), the undeserving, but still newly appointed Supervisor, who also happens to be her ex; Earl (Lawson), her stern and hard to please former judge father; Vanessa (Traoré), an uptight rookie lawyer from a privileged background; and her former law professor and the “one who got away”, Bennett (Truvillion).
Erica Ash (Survivors Remorse), Richard Lawson (For Colored Girls), Christian Keyes (Supernatural), Tobias Truvillion (Empire), Mouna Traoré (Book of Negroes) and more.
IN CONTEMPT premieres on Tuesday, April 10, 2018 at 10PM ET (10 episodes).
