For TV viewers who are growing wary of the reruns such as "Law and Order" or "Boston Legal," CBS has a new Friday night legal drama just for you, "Made in Jersey."
Jersey girl Martina Garretti (Janet Montgromery) has landed herself a job as a first-year law associate at the prestigious New York office of Stark and Rowan. With one courageous move, she is handed a case that nobody else seems to be able to create a credible defense for. It is not surprising that a street-smart New Jersey girl in her first year at a law firm gets handed major cases and uses scenarios such as nail manicures, hair coloring and local bars to figure out that a young college student killed her professor, right?
Of course not because this is the sole premise of "Made in Jersey."
This show seemed like it was trying to merge a Disney teen show with a serious legal drama. During the course of her investigate, Garretti is met with no dead ends, no frustration and no stress. Her first case for Stark and Rowan just goes smoothly without one hint of trouble and Garretti is able to save the poor damsel in distress from wrongfully being accused of murdering her professor.
