The Whole Truth is a legal drama series that first appeared in September 2010 on ABC. The show is shot in Los Angeles, CA, but it supposed to be set in NYC. The plotline follows various legal cases from the perspectives of the defense and the prosecution. The drama features an ensemble cast and has received mixed reviews and generally poor ratings. In October of 2010, it was announced that the show had been canceled.
The ensemble cast of The Whole Truth consists of Rob Morrow
as Jimmy Brogan, Maura Tierney
as Kathryn Peale, Eamonn Walker
as Terrence 'Edge' Edgecomb, Anthony Ruivivar
as Alejo Salazar, Sean Wing
as Chad Griffin, as Christine Adams
as Lena Boudreaux. Jimmy Brogan is the owner of James Brogan and Associates, a criminal defense firm. Kathryn Peale is a District Attorney, and Terrence Edgecomb works for the DA as well. Alejo Salazar works for James Brogan and Associates and is openly homosexual. Chad Griffin works for the DA, and Lena Boudreaux is one of the newest attorneys working for James Brogan and Associates. Several other supporting characters recur on the show as well.
The premise of The Whole Truth is to present legal cases from both sides of the courtroom. Though the drama was not renewed for a second season, it was well-received by some and received mediocre reviews. A similar show, The Defenders, was rated much higher and occupied the same time slot as The Whole Truth, which likely contributed to the demise of the latter.
