An interesting take on the television courtroom drama from award-winning writer Steven Bochco (HILL STREET BLUES, NYPD BLUE, LA LAW) MURDER ONE follows one high-profile murder case over the course of the entire first season. Theodore "Teddy" Hoffman (Daniel Benzali) is an accomplished defense attorney working for a prominent LA firm. After successfully defending the shady and supremely wealthy Richard Cross in a murder charge, Hoffman is assigned to the case of Neil Avedon, accused of the same crime. Neil is a bad-boy actor battling serious drug and alcohol problems, and now looks to Hoffman for help. The gritty, realistic drama follows the case both in the courtroom and out, and incorporates an ensemble cast of key players in the case, including reporters, witnesses, jurors, and others, to create a portrait of the judicial system that won accolades from critics and audiences alike.
