Episode Synopsis: THE WHOLE TRUTH Pilot Episode Premiere – In the premiere episode, “Pilot,” viewers are introduced to Jimmy Brogan (Morrow), born and raised in Hell’s Kitchen and one of New York’s rising criminal defense attorney stars. Kathryn Peale (Tierney), the product of a New England background and a sheriff father, is a Deputy Bureau Chief in the Manhattan District Attorney’s office. These two have been friends (but enemies in the courtroom) since their days at Yale Law School, and face off in this episode about a high school history teacher and family man who’s arrested for the rape and murder of a female student.

Aiding Kathryn in the prosecution is the DA’s Bureau Chief Terrence “Edge” Edgecomb (Eamonn Walker) and Chad Griffin (Sean Wing), a very junior ADA and a total player. Over at Jimmy’s firm, his defense team includes Alejo Salazar (Anthony Ruivivar), Jimmy’s faithful and extremely competent second, and Lena Boudreaux (Christine Adams), a recent hire angling to be Jimmy’s second on the murder case.

Guest Cast: John Aylward as Judge Jeremiah Studley, Jack McGee as Stan Klotz, Rick Kelly as Glen Sellards, Allison Smith as Corinne Sellards, Skyler Day as Brianna Sellards.

THE WHOLE TRUTH Summary: This unique legal drama chronicles the way a case is built from the perspective of both the defense and prosecution. Showing each side equally keeps the audience guessing, shifting allegiances and opinions on guilt or innocence until the very final scene.
Kathryn Peale, the product of a New England background and a sheriff father, is the Deputy Bureau Chief in the New York State District Attorney’s office. Jimmy Brogan, 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. Buoyed by their respective teams, these evenly matched lawyers — each with a strong streak of competitiveness, a fervent belief in their clients and an equally intense passion for the law — go about creating two different stories from the same set of facts. As this up-close, behind-the-scenes look at the legal process mirrors the excitement of a championship match, it becomes evident that truth has nothing to do with innocence or guilt — at the end of every trial, the only thing that matters is what the jury believes.
