The Firm (NBC) “Chapter Nine” Episode 9


The Firm, “Chapter Nine” Episode 9 airs on Saturday March 3 on NBC (10p.m. ET).

Episode Synopsis: Mitch (Josh Lucas) and Ray (Callum Keith Rennie) are hired by a desperate father, Sergeant Leonard Debs (guest star Roger Cross, “24”), who enlists their help with the mysterious death of his son. However, their investigation puts them both in the center of the surreal world of Federal “terror law,” where national security trumps civil liberties and secret proceedings replace public hearings. Meanwhile, Tammy (Juliette Lewis) finds herself a new job, in an effort to help further their ongoing investigation in the Sarah Holt case. Molly Parker and Natasha Calis also star. Shaun Majumder guest stars.

Show Summary: Based on the blockbuster feature film and best-selling novel by world-renowned author John Grisham (“The Pelican Brief,” “The Client”), “The Firm” continues the story of attorney Mitchell McDeere and his family 10 years after the events of the film and novel.

As a young associate, McDeere brought down the prestigious Memphis law firm of Bendini, Lambert & Locke, which operated as a front for the Chicago mob — and his life was never the same. After a difficult decade, which included a stay in the Federal Witness Protection program, Mitch and his family now emerge from isolation to reclaim their lives and their future — only to find that past dangers are still lurking and new threats are everywhere.

“The Firm” is produced by Entertainment One in association with Sony Pictures Television and Paramount Pictures. The executive producers are Grisham, Lukas Reiter (“Law & Order,” “Boston Legal”), John Morayniss (“Haven,” “Hung”), Michael Rosenberg (“Hung,” “Skins”) and Noreen Halpern (“Rookie Blue,” “Hung”).
