Written by Spottiswood, All Rise is a drama that follows the dedicated, chaotic, hopeful, and sometimes absurd lives of judges, prosecutors, and public defenders as they work with bailiffs, clerks and cops to get justice for the people of Los Angeles amidst a flawed legal system.
Lee plays Thomas Choi, the new Head Deputy District Attorney in the downtown courthouse and DDA Mark Callan’s (Bethel) new boss. Choi’s a company man who believes in pushing the crap through the system as promptly as possible in order to prioritize major crimes. But he’s not such a rigid rule follower that he won’t bend them a little from time to time.
