CBS’s upcoming legal drama is created by the surprising writing duo of Dana Stevens (“Safe Haven,” “City of Angels” and Joel Silver (“Die Hard,” “Lethal Weapon”). It is executive produced by Stevens, “Twilight” film director Catherine Hardwicke, Corey Miller, Ian Sander and Kim Moses of Sander-Moses Productions.
“Reckless” Season 1 Premiere Episode 1 “Pilot” is directed by Catherine Hardwicke and written by Devon Greggory. It follows two lawyers who must set their growing attraction aside as they go head-to-head after a critical scandal broke out.
According to TV Guide, “Pilot” will start with the aftermath of a scandal that will let all hell break loose in Charleston, South Carolina. Roy Rayder (Cam Gigandet), a New York-based lawyer and a divorced dad of two, arrives as the new city attorney. He is the son of Melinda Rayder (Bess Armstrong). He was given the said position with the help of his former father-in-law Dec Fortnum (Gregory Harrison). He got tapped by the police department to represent them regarding the scandal.
Roy’s case would be against Lee Anne Marcus (Georgina Haig), who has grounds that made her claim that she was raped. Lee Anne previously worked under Deputy Chief Holland Knox (Michael Gladis) alongside corrupt detective Terry McCandless (Shawn Hatosy) and Jaime’s sketchy boyfriend Preston Cruz (Adam Rodriguez).
Southern attorney Jaime Sawyer (Anna Wood) will represent the disgraced former cop against Roy. She will be joined by her loyal friend and paralegal named (Vi Briggs). The promotional photos from Spoiler TV show the obvious growing sexual tension between the two lawyers. Roy and Jaime must set their sexual attraction aside as they probe further in Lee Anne’s case. They will then discover that there are so much bigger things happening in the Charleston Police Department.
Dana Stevens shared with Deadline that the series was based on her experience dating a defense attorney, who hails from the south.
“I was completely inspired by his work…he reps fireman and policemen and the local drama that happens in his town. I had never spent any time in the South and I was blown away by how different it is,” said Stevens in the Deadline article.
Moreover, “Reckless” will debut as part of CBS’ summer schedule along with “Big Brother: US” and the premiere of “Extant” starring Halle Berry. It will share June 30, 2014 as the premiere date for other returning CBS series including “Under the Dome” and “Unforgettable.”
