So Help Me Todd is a legal drama television series that premiered on CBS in September 2022. The show centers around Todd, a talented but directionless private investigator who begins working for his successful attorney mother Margaret. Though they have a complicated relationship, Todd and Margaret end up making an excellent team as they take on various legal cases.

Margaret is an accomplished and no-nonsense lawyer who built her own successful law firm from the ground up. She gave up her dreams of being a public defender to provide for her family, which has led to some resentment from Todd. Despite their differences, Todd begrudgingly goes to work for Margaret's firm after his easygoing lifestyle fails to pay the bills. With Todd's unconventional investigating skills and Margaret's legal expertise, they start winning cases together in the courtroom.

While Todd initially only plans to work for his mother temporarily, he soon finds the job provides the purpose he's been lacking. He discovers he has a talent for connecting with clients and finding key evidence others would miss. Todd also begins repairing his relationship with Margaret, understanding her more as he sees the challenges she faces as a high-powered attorney.

Throughout the first season, Todd and Margaret take on a variety of cases dealing with murder, embezzlement, custody disputes and more. Though Todd doesn't have formal legal training, he proves he can think outside the box and has creative ways of gathering information to exonerate clients or prove their innocence. His methods don't always follow traditional protocol, which initially frustrates Margaret who is used to doing things by the book. However, she comes to appreciate Todd's unorthodox style.

The show also focuses on the dynamics between Todd and the other employees at the law firm, who are initially skeptical of Todd's abilities. This includes Todd clashing with Derek, a top litigator at the firm who views him as a rival. The team also includes Bodie, an idealistic young lawyer, and Lyle, a savvy legal investigator who becomes Todd's friend.

Overall, So Help Me Todd provides a compelling mix of legal drama and family dynamics against the backdrop of the high-stakes courtroom. By combining Margaret's polished expertise with Todd's grit and tenacity, the duo demonstrates that justice can prevail even when the odds seem stacked against them. The show's first season airs weekly on CBS.

So Help Me Todd is a series that is currently running and has 2 seasons (27 episodes). The series first aired on September 29, 2022.
