Synopsis

Canterbury's Law is a courtroom drama about a rebellious female defence attorney who's willing to bend the law in order to protect the wrongfully accused.

Elizabeth Canterbury (Julianna Margulies) is a force of nature. An attorney on the rise, she puts her career on the line to take on risky and unpopular cases, even when they take a toll on her personal life.

Elizabeth and her law professor husband, Matt Furey (Aidan Quinn), haunted by the unsolved disappearance of their young son, struggle to distance themselves from the tragedy and put their relationship back together.

But those goals become elusive whenever Elizabeth's work provides a stark reminder of the justice absent in their own lives.

At the office, Canterbury has surrounded herself with a brilliant crew of attorneys. Russell Krauss (Ben Shenkman) was forced out of the Rhode Island Attorney General's Office when he went toe-to-toe with his morally bankrupt boss.

His reputation tarnished, he turned to Canterbury, who was the only lawyer in Providence willing to take him in. Now Russell provides a much-needed voice of reason for Canterbury even when she doesn't want to hear it, his position of influence well-earned by their years of friendship.

Chester Grant (Keith Robinson) and Molly McConnell (Trieste Kelly Dunn) are the associates rounding out Canterbury's legal team.

Chester is a congressman's son who has turned his back on both his father and his father's politics. Headstrong and passionate, Molly is quick to take sides - even if she finds herself in the opposite corner from Canterbury.

Produced by Apostle in association with Sony Pictures Television, Canterbury's Law introduces an attorney like no other: one whose professional and personal battles are equally vivid; and whose strengths and vices, victories and demons, all combine to serve those in need of justice.
