Maura Tierney Cast In THE WHOLE TRUTH (ABC)

Maura Tierney

Maura Tierney (ER) has joined the cast of THE WHOLE TRUTH as a series regular. She is taking over for Joely Richardson who dropped out of the project. The new drama series from Jerry Bruckheimer Television will air Wednesdays from 10:00-11:00 p.m., ET this fall on ABC.

The Whole Truth will chronicle the way a case is built from the perspectives of both the defense and prosecution. By showing each side equally, the series will keep its audience guessing, shifting allegiances of guilt or innocence until the very final scene.

Tierney will play Kathryn Peale a deputy bureau chief in the Manhattan District Attorney’s office. Jimmy Brogan (Rob Morrow, “Numb3rs”), born and raised in Hell’s Kitchen and a friend of Kathryn’s since their days at Yale Law School, is one of New York’s rising criminal attorney stars. These two evenly matched legal masters will square off each week as the central characters of the series.

The Whole Truth also stars Christine Adams (“Home Again”), Anthony Ruivivar (“Third Watch”), Eamonn Walker (“Oz”) and Sean Wing (“Beautiful People”).
Tom Donaghy wrote the pilot, which was directed by Alex Graves (“Fringe”), who also executive-produced the pilot.
