Family Law, which premiered on Canada's Global TV last September and has already been renewed for Season 2, "follows lawyer and recovering alcoholic Abigail Bianchi (Staite) as she attempts to put both her personal and professional life back together," per Variety. "As part of her probation, she is forced to work alongside her estranged father Harry (Garber), practicing family law for the first time."
Legal Dramas are nothing new to TVs around the world. It is a formula we all know, even if we can’t place what show is our favourite. A new homegrown show set in Vancouver, Family Law takes the formula and reinvests it with an amazing cast, smart writing and a rarely seen setting. With rarely seen takes on the legal system and some great family dynamics, this is a show that should make fans of the genre take notice.
The folks at Family Law are in a pretty sweet position. With Episode 7 set to air this Friday at 9 p.m. ET on Global, a second season has already been filmed and in the can; we’re just waiting to find out when they’ll be broadcast. Having a second season already completed is rare in television and led to some nerves for Jewel Staite.
