[via press release from ABC]

ABC TO BROADCAST NEW MIDSEASON POLICE DRAMA "BLIND JUSTICE" WITH VIDEO DESCRIPTION FOR THE VISUALLY IMPAIRED

First Regular ABC Series to Be Offered with Video Description Will Premiere Tuesday, March 8

For the first time on the ABC Television Network, a regular scripted series -- "Blind Justice," from Steven Bochco Productions -- will be broadcast with video description for the visually impaired. "Blind Justice," the next generation of police drama, chronicles the journey of Detective Jim Dunbar, an officer blinded in a shootout because of his partner's negligence.

Video description is a broadcast service for the visually impaired which offers a descriptive narrative woven into the soundtrack between character dialogue. It is activated via the SAP (Secondary Audio Programming) feature on modern televisions. To date, ABC has offered selected theatrical films or movies-for-television with video description, but never before a regular series.

"Blind Justice," which premieres TUESDAY, MARCH 8 (10:00-11:00 p.m., ET) on ABC, is the latest dramatic realization by Steven Bochco, who also created the critically acclaimed and long-running series "Hill Street Blues" and "NYPD Blue."

The midseason series will star Ron Eldard as Detective Jim Dunbar, Marisol Nichols as Detective Karen Bettancourt, Rena Sofer as Christie Dunbar, Reno Wilson as Detective Tom, Frank Grillo as Detective Marty Russo and Michael Gaston as Lieutenant Fisk.

Co-creators of "Blind Justice," along with Bochco, are Nicholas Wootton and Matt Olmstead. Bill Clark and John Badham serve as executive producers. The series is produced by Steven Bochco Productions in association with Paramount Network Television for ABC.
