Theodore Hoffman is a prominent defense attorney in a prestigious Los Angeles law firm. After successfully defending the wealthy but suspicious Richard Cross in a lurid murder trial, he is now involved in the defense of Neil Avedon. Neil is a famous young actor who has had severe drug and alcohol problems and was subsequently charged with the murder, after Cross was acquitted. This single case will run an entire television season (interspersed with bits from other cases that the firm is involved in).Written by

Daniel Benzali was allegedly fired from the show for being late by an hour every day of production. When Steven Bochco asked him about it Benzali said he was consistently late because "[he] had to wait until [he] had his morning dump" before coming to set. See more »
Cross said he'd waive any conflict. He wants me to represent Avedon.
Davey, if I was making book I make it three to one Avedon didn't kill that girl.
Well, if he was guilty you wouldn't think he'd have told Polson he was at the girl's apartment just to get out from under a drug bust.
If Cross did it, why does he want me on the case?
'Cause he likes playing with fire and you're the hottest guy in town...
If he didn't do it then it makes more sense. Take a ride with me to Parker ...

I recently purchased the DVD of the first series. The very first episode quickly reminded of how much I enjoyed all 23. It is truly compelling television. All the characters, even the most minor are well cast and played magnificently by all. I particularly enjoyed the Machiavellian scheming of "Richard Cross", played by Stanley Tucci, the smart comments of judge Beth Bornstein(I forget her real name) and Miriam Grasso played by Barbara Bosson (with such aplomb!).
They don't make them like this any more, 24 does not cut it in comparison.
