Joining the cast are Rose Leslie (Maia Rindell), Delroy Lindo (Robert Boseman), Paul Guilfoyle (Henry Rindell), Bernadette Peters (Lenore Rindell), and Erica Tazel.

In the new series, an enormous financial scam has destroyed the reputation of a young lawyer, Maia, while simultaneously wiping out her mentor Diane Lockhart’s savings. Forced out of Lockhart/Lee, they join Lucca Quinn at one of Chicago's top law firms. We also know that Maia hails from one of Chicago's preeminent families, and Diane will be clashing with a rival attorney.

Brooke Kennedy is directing the premiere episode, which was co-written by the Kings and Phil Alden Robinson.
