    'The Defenders'


    Show: 'The Defenders'
    Network: CBS
    Timeslot: Wednesdays, 10PM ET

    The lowdown: Nick Morelli (Jim Belushi) and Pete Kaczmarek (Jerry O'Connell) are attorneys in Las Vegas who are not only brash -- they just unveiled a huge billboard near the Strip -- but are inclined to take chances with their clients. If they need to skirt contempt in order to get a judge to inadvertently help them out, they will. If it takes sleeping with the prosecutor to get a kid's charges dismissed, they will (at least Nick will). As they get more notoriety, their client list becomes more eclectic. At the same time, Nick is separated from his wife, Pete is living at the Planet Hollywood hotel and bedding flight attendants, and they're both trying to break in a new associate (Jurnee Smollett) who has to constantly fight against her reputation as a former stripper.


    They also bring a comedic touch that will hopefully allow the writers to explore Morelli's and Kaczmarek's lives a little more and keep the courtroom scenes to only what's necessary. The more we see of the two of them operating in the weirdness and glitz of Vegas and the less we see of them pontificating to a jury -- the case in the pilot is a pretty grim murder case -- the more 'The Defenders' will separate itself from the other lawyer-centric dramas on TV. But if a show like this can survive and thrive anywhere, it's at CBS.
