Rob Morrow & Maura Tierney Give Me 'The Whole Truth' On Their New Show (VIDEO)

Rob Morrow and Maura Tierney, 'The Whole Truth'It feels like Rob Morrow and Maura Tierney have both been on TV for ages, and they've both tackled comedy and drama with equal success -- he on 'Northern Exposure' and 'Numb3rs,' and she on 'NewsRadio' and 'ER.'

That's just one reason why their pairing on 'The Whole Truth' (premiering Wed., Sept. 22 at 10PM ET) feels like a match made in heaven. Playing two opposing legal sides in a courtroom, both lawyers are sharp, witty and obviously share an interesting past. (The same couldn't be said for the original pilot, which had 'Nip/Tuck' alum Joely Richardson in the female lead role. So happy Maura was available and healthy enough to step in!)

'The Whole Truth' follows both sides of the trial, with Tierney's by-the-numbers Kathryn Peale prosecuting and Morrow's unorthodox Jimmy Brogan defending. Audiences will get a look at how each side prepares the case and, in the last few moments of the show, find out who or what was really behind the crime. Sound too procedural? Don't let the description and commercials fool you, the series is filled with subtly revealing moments for the leads -- just how close were Peale and Brogan as classmates at Yale Law? -- and the supporting players.

I caught up with Rob and Maura to get their take on this not-always-dramatic legal drama, why it's good that the bad guys sometimes get off, how 'My Cousin Vinny' might help them prep and their phenomenal wishlists for dream guest stars.

I see someone else has noticed the similarities between Tierney and Morrow's former costar and romantic interest on Northern Exposure (how I miss that show!) Ms Janine Turner....perhaps Ms Turner will show up on a future episode, playing perhaps Tierney's character's sister? They really look a lot alike now since Tierney now has short darker hair! I would love to see an onscreen reunion of sorts between Morrow and Turner...what interesting chemistry they had.

Thank goodness Maura is recovering from her battle with cancer..... She's more beautiful than she's ever been.

Maura is recovering from breast cancer maybe she lost her hair due to chemo, that could be the reason for the short do.
