(from ABC's press release) In the competitive world of high-pressure law firms, either you make partner or you make plans to find a new job. Unfortunately, you could be competing with your closest friends, your surrogate family and sometimes even the people you date. If you don't make it to the top, you hope your friend makes it. But deep down, you wish it were you. The blue team is one of eight litigation groups at The Firm. Josh and Julie are the leaders and just a couple years away from the partnership vote. Only one can make it, however, which is difficult enough when you're competing with a friend, but even more so when that friend is also a former romantic involvement. Another team member, Elise, is torn between competing full-speed for partner or deciding to take the mommy track instead. But first, she needs to find someone to sidetrack with her. Ethan may be the smartest, but being home schooled is better training for Spelling Bees and Star Wars conventions than White Shoe law firms. Then there's Todd, a first-year associate on his first day and the son of a famous trial attorney, trying not to trip as he runs from the giant shadow cast by his father. Theresa, the mother hen paralegal, keeps them all in line but is viewed with a mixture of love and fear. Together, the blue team forms a bond that only working 80-hour weeks, meeting impossible demands by impatient bosses, and a really smoking iTunes collection can build. Gabe Sachs and Jeff Judah who created "Life As We Know It" and also wrote for "Freaks and Geeks" and "Just Shoot Me," take a comic look at the high-rise world of ambition and friendship, where there is more to gain or lose than a career.
