As the multi-award winning writer/producer behind some of the most successful legal television shows in America, the author offers his perspective on creating law franchises on television. Although many things have changed regarding legal television shows over the twenty-five years of his career, the author maintains that legal franchises will continue to thrive because they evolve like the law itself. He contends that legal shows are intellectually challenging and emotionally appealing even if they are not always realistic.
