DESCRIPTION: (from ABC's press release, April 2013) "Everything's going to be okay", that is the mantra defense attorney Vince Calzonetti invokes to his clients, co-workers, and friends when things are at their worst. And with Vince, it seems things are always at their worst. A former cop turned low-rent lawyer, Vince uses his street smarts to work the system for his clients and his methods in and out of the courtroom are notoriously unconventional. And Vince finds himself in court a lot; depending on the day, he's either the attorney or the defendant. He's a complicated soul always bending the law in order to keep the doors of his struggling, new practice open for all who depend on him, including his legal associates Mr. and Mrs. Syd Newman and his mentally and physically challenged brother Mark. He does it all while battling his own inner demons and trying to manage a complicated love/hate relationship with his ex-wife Linda, a DA. Vince doesn't have one cynical bone in his body, they're the only kinds of bones he has. He's not interested in truth, justice or the American way for that matter, all Vince is looking for is doubt...reasonable doubt...enough to get his clients off and get himself paid. His young paralegal Monica sees through that, though, and believes deep down Vince cares about the clients, the law and above all, the truth and maybe she's right. Either way, when Vince Calzonetti lays down the law, you'll want him on your side. From David Shore, the creator of HOUSE, comes a new, fast moving legal drama that will leave no DOUBT.
