DESCRIPTION: (from CBS's press release) JUDGING AMY is a drama starring Amy Brenneman as a single mother who has left New York behind to become a Family Court judge in Hartford, Conn. Judge Amy Gray (Amy Brenneman) is divorced and raising her young daughter, Lauren. They live with Amys very opinionated mother Maxine (Tyne Daly), a social worker who is often at odds with her boss, Sean (Timothy Omundson). Amy has reestablished relationships with her younger brother, Vincent (Dan Futterman), her older brother, Peter (Marcus Giamatti), and his wife, Gillian (Jessica Tuck). Assisting Amy in the courtroom are her Court Services officer, Bruce Van Exel (Richard T. Jones), and her eager court-clerk-turned-lawyer, Donna Kozlowski (Jillian Armenante). JUDGING AMY, based on the real-life story of Brenneman's mother, is about three generations of women living together as they confront the personal and professional dilemmas in their changing, challenging lives.
