The first season introduces viewers to the show’s cast. Carl Weathers (Apollo Creed from Rocky) plays the State’s Attorney who was also a Marine. The cast also includes the Assistant State’s Attorney Peter Stone (who was also a former Chicago Cubs pitcher), Chief Investigator Antonio Dawson (a police officer from Chicago PD turned investigator), Investigator Laura Nagel (a recovering drug addict trying to get custody of her children back) and Assistant State’s Attorney Anna Valdez.
The show opens with a crime being committed. Then viewers follow the process of the State investigators gathering evidence and tracking down the offender. The Assistant State’s Attorney then tries the case and viewers get to follow the trial from beginning to end. Often times these cases are high-profile and garner the attention of local politicians and the media.
Some of the themes of the show include police brutality, Muslim violence, and rape.
*Great character chemistry
*Slow character development
*Heavy reliance on crossover characters from other shows
