Watch Harry's Law

Harry's Law, created by David E. Kelley, was a comedy-drama which aired on NBC. It ran for twelve episodes in its first season. The show was renewed for a second season which consisted of twenty-two episodes. The season two finale aired in late May of 2012. NBC will not be renewing Harry's Law for a third season.

Kathy Bates starred as a recently fired patent lawyer named Harriet Korn. The series began with a seemingly jaded Harry finding passion for law again in the form of criminal defense. She and a handful of associates practiced law in an office located in a shoe store which was ran by her assistant Jenna Backstrom. As the second season began, Harry's firm moved to a larger office upstairs.

Despite Harry's abrasive, world-weary disposition, she took a genuine interest in her accused clients and worked toward proving their innocence with heartfelt sincerity. She even hired one of her clients Aml as a paralegal after he attempted suicide due to drug possession charges.

Other supporting characters on the show included a young arrogant attorney named Adam Branch and a semi-famous plaintiff's attorney named Tommy Jefferson. Plots involving relationships and romantic triangles amongst various attorneys, paralegals and assistants were interwoven throughout the series.

Kathy Bates's portrayal of Harry led to her nomination for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series at the 63rd Primetime Emmy Awards in 2011. After NBC's announcement of cancellation, fans on Facebook and other social media outlets created petitions and fanpages in an effort to revive the show.
