    NBC searching for California Lawyers

    NBC LOOKING FOR CALIFORNIA-BASED LAWYERS -- AND CIVIL COURT CASES - FOR UNTITLED ALTERNATIVE SERIES FROM EMMY-WINNING PRODUCER DAVID E. KELLEY

    BURBANK, Calif. -- June 29, 2004 -- NBC is looking for California-based lawyers and civil court cases for a new eight-episode alternative series that will feature lawyers arbitrating and trying real court cases with judges and juries, resulting in outcomes that will be final, legal and binding. Multiple Emmy Award winner David E. Kelley ("The Practice," "Ally McBeal," "L.A. Law") will serve as an executive producer, along with David Garfinkle ("Surreal Life," "Blind Date"), Jay Renfroe ("Surreal Life," "Blind Date") and Jonathan Pontell ("Ally McBeal," "Boston Public").

    Smart, outgoing and industrious men and women who are members of the Bar Association in good standing, have trial experience and live in California are encouraged to e-mail a picture and resume to nbclawseries@mail.com or send to Oseola Productions, Inc., 5700 Wilshire Blvd., 6th Floor, LA, CA 90036. Legal eagles hoping to join this "TV law firm" and compete for a large cash prize can also download an application on the "contestants" page at www.nbc.com.

    Those interested in submitting a case for consideration can contact the show's case hotline at 1-866-408-1727, or send an e-mail to tvlawfirm@yahoo.com. Civil cases from all areas of the law will be considered, including but not limited to personal injury, property disputes, workplace disputes, discrimination, contract disputes, sexual harassment, fraud, medical malpractice, and family or inheritance disputes.

    Litigants who are ultimately chosen will be represented either by the lawyers in this "TV law firm" or by a distinguished guest attorney. Most cases on the program will be tried in a courtroom setting, but some may be arbitrated in a less formal environment.

    The "TV law firm" will be led by a managing partner, who will decide which legal eagle will be eliminated each week. Distinguished judges will be deciding cases, either with or without the aid of a jury, depending on the case. Cases will be resolved just as they would be in court, only in this forum, they will be tried on primetime television by lawyers hoping to ultimately win a cash prize.

    The series is produced by Oseola Productions, Inc. and will be distributed by 20th Century Fox Television.
