Ask TV Squad: Justice Something?
Reader Jeannie Jacks wants to know the following:
I can't remember the exact name of the show, but I think it was "Justice Denied". It came on Friday nights, 9:00 on ABC. What happened to it? All of a sudden it was gone! I loved it because it showed just how screwed up our justice system really can be.
Jeannie, the name of the show was In Justice and it was a mid-season replacement for ABC this past winter. It starred Kyle MacLachlan (Twin Peaks, Sex in the City) as the head of the Oakland, California based National Justice Project. Their job was to revisit cases where they believed that the person found guilty and put and jail was actually innocent.
Unfortunately, despite the critical and public acclaim the show received, it was not picked up for the network's fall season. However, I'm sure the cast members aren't too disappointed, as many had already lined up other gigs even before the last show ended. For instance, MacLachlan had a recurring role on Desperate Housewives this past season, and Constance Zimmer, who portrayed Brianna, will be appearing in several episodes of HBO's Entourage in the upcoming season.
