Shot on location in Canada, the TV reincarnation of the book and film picks up 10 years after young hot shot lawyer, Mitch McDeere, brought down a Memphis law firm fronting the Chicago mob.

Mitch and his family attempt to reclaim their lives by moving to DC to start their own firm after leaving the Federal Witness Protection Program.
