ABC Books 'The D.A.' for Midseason
By Brian Ford Sullivan (TFC)

CHICAGO (thefutoncritic.com) -- ABC continued to build its midseason slate over the weekend as the network has ordered three episodes of the drama "The D.A." in addition to its pilot.

Here's how ABC describes the series (via press release):

District Attorney David Franks (Steven Weber) is young, charismatic, ambitious � with his eyes fixed firmly on the governor�s office. A relentless careerist, he times all his best moves to break on the evening news. By contrast, David�s idealistic, relentless, no-holds-barred chief investigator, Mark Camacho (Bruno Campos), is a throwback who lives for the law and won�t stop short of the truth.

Colleagues one minute and opponents the next, David and Mark lead a group of remarkably true-to-life professionals � and deeply flawed personalities � in the pursuit of justice. The crimes they investigate and the suspects they break are headline-making career-builders. But self-interest, grudges, private vendettas and illicit affairs simmer just below the polished public face of this District Attorney�s Office.

Each week "The D.A." captures the tension, vigor and gritty in-fighting, as imperfect people struggle for perfect justice.

"The D.A." stars Steven Weber ("Wings," "Once and Again," "Stephen King's The Shining") as David Franks, Bruno Campos ("Jesse," "ER") as Mark Camacho, J.K. Simmons ("Oz") as Joe Carter, Sarah Paulson ("What Women Want," "The Other Sister") as Lisa Patterson and Aunjanue Ellis ("Undercover Brother," "Men of Honor," "Lovely & Amazing") as Ellen Baker.

James Duff ("Enterprise," "The War At Home," "Doing Time on Maple Drive") is writer and executive producer. Greer Shephard ("Nip/Tuck," "Popular") and Michael M. Robin ("Nip/Tuck," "L.A. Law," "NYPD Blue," "Popular"), who also directs, are executive producers of the series. Former Los Angeles District Attorney Gil Garcetti serves as a consultant on the show, which is a production of The Shephard/Robin Company in association with Warner Bros. Television Production Inc.

Former L.A. district attorney Gil Garcetti also serves as consultant on the series, which ABC plans to air as a four-hour "event" in the spring.
