TNT is heading back to court with the return of “Raising The Bar.”
The show, starring Gloria Rueben (“ER”), Mark-Paul Gossler (“Saved By The Bell”) and Jane Kaczmarek, follows the lives and legal cases of people who work on opposite sides of the law: public defenders and district attorneys.
Gloria plays Rosalind “Roz” Whitman a public defender, who although she may appear to be easy to manipulate, has a keen mind for legal maneuvering. With skills like that and a kind heart to boot, it’s no wonder she’s running things at the Public Defender’s Office.
Roz has a passionate belief in the mission of public defenders and she loves her job, but as of late, she’s found herself missing the hands-on aspect of her position. Luckily for her, she’ll be in the courtroom much more often this season alongside her very capable staff members like Jerry Kellerman (played by Mark).
However, things only get complicated when she begins a relationship with one of her staff members, and the new romance might prompt her to think about moving into the high-powered field of corporate law.
You can watch all the drama unfold, both in and out of the courtroom, when TNT airs the season premiere of “Raising The Bar” on June 8 at 10 p.m. EST.
