“The DA is going say a lot of stuff about you that isn’t true and you’ll want to react, Don’t stay cool.” In ‘Doubt’ Katherine Heigl stars as Sadie Ellis, a brilliant attorney in a New York top defense firm who starts to fall for her charismatic client, Billy Brennan, an altruistic pediatric surgeon recently accused of murdering his girlfriend 24 years ago. “You believe he’s innocent fine, but right now innocence doesn’t matter, winning this case matters.” Sadie is hiding her growing feelings from everyone, including her close friend and colleague, Albert Cobb, who thinks he knows everything about her.
“The fact that you’re having feelings means that you are good at your job. The minute you stop feeling for your clients means you need to go back to the farm.” “Not everyone from Iowa lives on a farm.” Working on other cases at the practice 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.
Nothing is certain when everything is in doubt. They all consider it a privilege to work for Isaiah Roth, a revered legal lion and “lefty” legend, whose approval is their holy grail. Sadie’s decision to become involved with her client could put her career, as well as her happiness, at risk if Billy is found guilty, which means she needs to work all the harder to prove reasonable doubt, even if she has some herself.
The legal drama, ‘Doubt’ created by husband-and-wife writing/executive-producing team, Tony Phelan and Joan Rater stars Katherine Heigl, Steven Pasquale, Elliott Gould, Dulé Hill, Laverne Cox and Dreama Walker.
