"The Whole Truth," starring Rob Morrow and Maura Tierney, employs a unique alternating narrative structure that chronicles the way a felony case is built from the perspectives of both the defense and the prosecution. Portraying each side equally keeps the audience guessing - shifting allegiances and opinions on guilt or innocence until the final scene. Ultimately, it becomes evident that innocence and guilt have nothing to do with the truth - the only thing that matters at the end of every trial is what the jury believes. "The Whole Truth" premieres WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 22 (10:00-11:00 p.m., ET), on ABC. Note: This program will repeat Friday, Sept. 24 at 9:00 p.m., ET.

In the premiere episode, "Pilot," viewers are introduced to Jimmy Brogan (Morrow), born and raised in Hell's Kitchen and one of New York's rising criminal defense attorney stars. Kathryn Peale (Tierney), the product of a New England background and a sheriff father, is a Deputy Bureau Chief in the Manhattan District Attorney's office. These two have been friends (but enemies in the courtroom) since their days at Yale Law School, and face off in this episode about a high school history teacher and family man who's arrested for the rape and murder of a female student.

Aiding Kathryn in the prosecution is the DA's Bureau Chief Terrence "Edge" Edgecomb (Eamonn Walker) and Chad Griffin (Sean Wing), a very junior ADA and a total player. Over at Jimmy's firm, his defense team includes Alejo Salazar (Anthony Ruivivar), Jimmy's faithful and extremely competent second, and Lena Boudreaux (Christine Adams), a recent hire angling to be Jimmy's second on the murder case.
