Made in Jersey is a legal drama tv series that premiered on CBS in 2012. The show follows Martina Garretti, played by British actress Janet Montgomery, an ambitious young woman from New Jersey who works as a lawyer in a top New York law firm. Martina is a proud Jersey-girl who uses her unique background and street smarts to stand out in her cutthroat workplace. She navigates the elitist world of high-powered lawyers while staying true to her roots and values.

Her colleagues initially underestimate her, but she quickly proves herself as a valuable asset to the firm. Her boss, Donovan Stark, portrayed by Kyle MacLachlan, recognizes her talent and takes her under his wing, guiding her through the competitive world of law.

Through each episode, Martina tackles a new case with her trademark Jersey spunk, taking on prejudice, corruption, and even murder. She often relies on the support of her family, including her sister Bonnie (Toni Trucks), who is trying to make it as a musician, and her mother Darlene (Donna Murphy), who raised Martina and her siblings as a single parent.

The show also features a romantic storyline between Martina and her colleague Nolan (Kristoffer Polaha), who is a partner at the firm. Nolan comes from a privileged background, and their relationship creates tension between Martina and her colleagues.

The cast is rounded out by Erin Cummings as Bonnie's friend Martina, Megalyn Echikunwoke as Martina's best friend Riley, Felix Solis as ADA Rivero, and Stephanie March as ADA Natalie Minka.

Made in Jersey received mixed reviews and was canceled after just two episodes due to low ratings. However, the series garnered praise for its portrayal of a strong, independent female protagonist from a diverse background.

Overall, Made in Jersey is a fast-paced, entertaining legal drama with a unique twist. It celebrates the hard-working, immigrant families of New Jersey while showcasing the skills and determination of a young lawyer trying to make it in the big city.

Made in Jersey is a series that is currently running and has 1 seasons (8 episodes). The series first aired on September 28, 2012.
