DESCRIPTION:
(from USA's press release, September 2014) Courtroom drama is no laughing matter... until now! USA Network's new original half hour comedy BENCHED will premiere Tuesday, October 28th (10:30-11 p.m. ET/PT) immediately following USA's laugh-out-loud reality hit CHRISLEY KNOWS BEST. BENCHED, starring Eliza Coupe ("Happy Endings"), is a single-camera comedy about a high-powered corporate lawyer's fall from grace into the rough-and-tumble world of the public defenders. BENCHED from ABC Signature Studio, stars Coupe as Nina Whitley, a distinguished corporate lawyer who has given up everything in her climb to the top. However, when she's hit with her ex-fiancé's engagement announcement and learns that she hasn't made partner at her high power firm, Nina snaps -- breaking vases and burning bridges. Now that Nina is shunned from the corporate world, the only place she can get a job is at the Public Defender's office: home to the underfunded, understaffed, overworked, "if you can't afford a lawyer, one will be provided... " lawyers. In addition to her new clients, Nina must learn to connect with her co-workers, including the roguish Phil (Jay Harrington, "Better Off Ted"), the idealistic Carlos (Oscar Nunez, "The Office"), the useless empathetic Cheryl (Maria Bamford, "Adventure Time") and the dedicated intern Micah (Jolene Purdy, "Under the Dome"). If that didn't sound tough enough for Nina, she'll also be going head-to-head with her ex-fiancé, Trent, (Carter MacIntyre, "Drop Dead Diva") the rising star of the District Attorney's office.
