The Firm scene

Josh Lucas is lawyer Mitch McDeere in The Firm.

The Firm, the 2012 hour-long television action-drama show that aired on NBC, is based on John Grisham’s best-selling novel and the 1993 blockbuster feature film starring Tom Cruise (Rock of Ages) as young lawyer Mitch McDeere. This time around, Josh Lucas (Daydream Nation) portrays McDeere—but don’t get too comfortable with him as the show was cancelled by NBC in May, 2012 after a single season of 22 episodes.

It’s been 10 years since the young associate Mitch McDeere brought down his prestigious Memphis law firm, exposing it as a front for the Chicago mob and captivating millions of readers around the world.  Now, he and his family emerge from the isolation of the Witness Protection Program unaware that they are once again stepping into danger’s path. As McDeere starts his own law practice in Washington, D.C., he soon discovers that old and new threats are lurking everywhere…!

The TV series also stars Callum Keith Rennie (TV’s Californication), Juliette Lewis (Due Date)  and Molly Parker (TV’s Deadwood).

The Firm was executive produced by the same people who were behind the TV shows Law & Order, Boston Legal and Hung, but that didn’t keep the series alive. Nor were the critics’ adequate reviews and a solid turn by leading man Lucas strong enough to bring viewers in.

The 6-disc set contains all The Firm’s episodes and the following bonus features:

  • Featurette: “Origins of The Firm by John Grisham”
  • Josh Lucas character profile
  • Cast and crew interviews
  • Behind-the-scenes footage
