Thornton stars as Billy McBride who, after winning a huge verdict in the Borns Tech case, is reluctantly pulled back into the law when his friend’s 16-year-old son is arrested for a double homicide. However, as Billy, Patty (Nina Arianda) and the team start to investigate what appears to be an open and shut murder case, they begin to untangle a deadly conspiracy in the seedy underbelly of Los Angeles, where drugs, real estate and politics intermingle. Thornton won a Golden Globe last year for his performance in the first season.
The new eight-episode season also stars Mark Duplass as Tom Wyatt, a successful developer who wants to give Los Angeles a distinct skyline, Morris Chestnut as Chief Deputy District Attorney Hakeem Rashad, who has an old grudge against Billy, and Ana De La Reguera as Marisol Silva, a city councilwoman in the race to be the first Latina mayor of Los Angeles. Tania Raymonde and Diana Hopper also return as Brittany Gold and Denise McBride, respectively. James Wolk is set to recur in Season 2.
Season two is executive produced by Lawrence Trilling (Parenthood) and Geyer Kosinski (Fargo). The series is created by David E. Kelley (Ally McBeal) and Jonathan Shapiro (The Practice).
