A Former Junkie Is Imprisoned for Murdering Her Father, on the Premiere of ABC's "In Justice," Sunday, January 1

[via press release from ABC]



The ABC Television Network will air the premiere of its new midseason drama, �In Justice,� on SUNDAY, JANUARY 1 (10:00-11:00 p.m., ET), it was announced today by Stephen McPherson, president, ABC Entertainment. The premiere will immediately follow an all new �Desperate Housewives� recap special entitled �All the Juicy Details.�

�In Justice� will have its regular time period premiere Friday, January 6 (9:00-10:00 p.m., ET).

�In Justice� is a completely new take on the procedural drama. Focusing on cases of justice run amok -- sloppy police work, false testimony and biased juries -- the National Justice Project is a high-profile, non-profit organization made up of hungry young associates who approach their work like a puzzle� a puzzle that�s been put together wrong. They fight to overturn wrongful convictions, liberate the falsely accused and discover the identity of those really to blame. They�re led in their task by modern-day heroes, David Swain, a blustery but charismatic attorney of questionable ethics but undeniable talent, and his chief investigator, Charles Conti, a former cop.

�Our aim is to use the valuable real estate following �Desperate Housewives� to introduce viewers to this compelling new drama,� McPherson said. �Because �Grey�s Anatomy� would have been a repeat on that night, fans of that show won�t be missing out. It�s a win-win.�

In the premiere episode, �Brothers and Sisters,� the National Justice Project takes on the case of a 32-year-old former junkie imprisoned for murdering her father while robbing his house.

�In Justice� stars Kyle MacLachlan as David Swain, Jason O�Mara as Charles Conti, Marisol Nichols as Sonya Quintano, Constance Zimmer as Brianna and Daniel Cosgrove as Jon Lemonick.

Guest starring in �Brothers and Sisters� are Rebecca Pidgeon as Charlotte, Harry Johnson as Henry McDermott, Marin Hinkle as Jane McDermott, Ben Messmer as Andrew McDermott, Frankie Ingrassia as Lisa Debrizzi and Sabra Williams as Sondra.

�Brothers and Sisters� is written by Tom Szentgyorgyi and directed by Paul Holahan.

Executive producers on �In Justice� are Robert King, Michelle King, Stu Bloomberg and Jeff Melvoin. The series is from Touchstone Television.

�In Justice� is broadcast in 720 Progressive (720P), ABC�s selected HDTV format, with 5.1-channel surround sound and Spanish subtitles via secondary closed captioning. A TV parental guideline will be assigned closer to airdate.
