In Contempt (BET) – Premieres 10th April
Procedural legal drama that follows Gwen Sullivan, a talented but opinionated public defender who does her utmost to get the people she’s representing acquitted.
While working a case she been given where her client has been wrongly accused, Gwen tries to find holes in the prosecution and to ultimately find the evidence that gets the case won. At the same time her colleague Bennett is trying his best to get back with her while also mentoring Vanessa. A newly qualified attorney working at the firm to fulfil her case load before she can move on to her job at another firm. And Gwens co-worker Tracy, along with occasionally helping her out, is having an affair with one of the judges.
For a legal drama it’s more or less on the same level as For The People, though slightly more watchable.
