TV Series | TV-14 | | Crime, Drama, Mystery
We follow the exploits and cases of defense attorneys of a Boston law firm. Bobby Donnell is the senior defense attorney and founder of the firm.
Ron Livingston played Allen Lowe who was added to the credits in Season 7 and became one of the regulars that season. He was being groomed to be one of the villains or antagonists in the series after Jason Kravits' Richard Bay character was killed off. Allen Lowe only lasted a few episodes though and was eventually written off the show. He was replaced by Bill Smitrovitch who played Assistant District Attorney Kenneth Walsh; Shore's supervisor. Smitrovitch was never part of the "regular cast" and was never in the opening credit like Livingston was; put he clicked with audiences more and became a bigger and more important character that Livingston was; eventually becoming the main antagonist on the series. He was eventually replaced by James Spader who became the main antagonist in the series.
Judge Roberta Kittleson:
You can write your congressman if you don't like the law, counsel. In here, we simply follow it.
Starting with the 2003 season, the order in which Steve Harris, Michael Badalucco and Camryn Manheim appear in the opening credits changes from week to week.
