{"title":"L.A. Law","dateDebut":"1986","dateEnd":"1994","description":"This critically acclaimed ensemble drama looked like Hill Street in\r\na fancy law office, with many characters and stories intertwined\r\nin each episode. The high-powered Los Angeles law firm of\r\nMcKenzie, Brackman, Chaney, and Kuzak took on cases of\r\nall types, criminal and civil, usually for high fees.\r\nLeland McKenzie was the esteemed, fatherly senior partner;\r\nBrackman, the vain, insufferable, balding partner struggling\r\nto fill his late father's formidable shoes; Kuzak, the savvy\r\nbut compassionate younger partner; Van Owen, the idealistic\r\nDeputy D.A. who was Kuzak's lover and sometime courtroom\r\nopponent; Ann, another idealistic attorney; Stuart, the\r\nfirm's nebbishy little tax attorney, who had a heart of\r\ngold and also had the hots for Ann; Arnie, the sleazy,\r\nwomanizing divorce lawyer; Victor, the uptight young\r\nHispanic brought into the firm to meet racial quotas,\r\nand he knew it; Abby, the unsure-of-herself young intern;\r\nJonathan, a young black lawyer; Benny, a retarded office\r\nworker; and Roxanne, the motherly receptionist.\r\n\r\nPlenty of office politics and sexual adventures were mixed\r\nin with the cases. Besides its soap-opera entanglements,\r\nL.A. Law emphasized outrageous situations and trendy cases.\r\nAs the season's wore on, cast members departed to be replaced\r\nseamlessly by actors of equal accomplishment. Slickly produced,\r\nsharply written and consummately acted, LA Law memorably set\r\nthe stylishly sophisticated tone for the deluge of legal series'\r\nwhich were destined to follow in its impressively substantial wake.","leadImageMedUrl":"http:\/\/distro-1.retrojunk.com\/secure\/b022e395b2f2d217c4705158144e9b293f9778035eb68181fb93fffb555fef528c8776\/image\/9a0_3e8d472904.jpg"}
