Fall TV preview: The Defenders

New drama, 10-11PM, CBS

Posted on

No client is too small or sleazy for Jim Belushi and Jerry O’Connell, who play scrappy Las Vegas attorneys. As Nick Morelli, Belushi is the hard-charging senior partner who’s going through a bitter divorce, while Pete Kaczmarek (O’Connell) is a lover of fast cars and (secretly) the hot district attorney, played by Dirty Sexy Money’s Natalie Zea. After shooting 182 episodes of According to Jim, Belushi is relishing the change of scenery. ”During those last five episodes of Jim, I remember for the first time looking at my watch and saying, ‘Okay, it’s time to go.’ Here, I never look at my watch. This will keep me challenged and interested.” SEPT. 22
