Katherine Heigl returns to TV in DOUBT as as Sadie Ellis, a brilliant attorney at a boutique firm who starts to fall for her charismatic client, Billy Brennan. Billy (a paediatric surgeon) has been arrested for murdering his girlfriend 24 years ago. As she falls deeper, Sadie is forced to hide her growing feelings from her coworkers, including Albert Cobb, who thinks he knows everything about her.
Also working at the firm is Cameron Wirth, a transgender Ivy League graduate who fights passionately for her clients since she’s experienced injustice first hand; Tiffany Simon, a second-year associate who is quickly learning the ropes from Wirth; and Nick, a former felon who earned his degree while serving time. They all consider it a privilege to work for Isaiah Roth, a revered legal lion and “lefty” legend, whose approval is their holy grail.
DOUBT will premiere midseason on CBS.
