Intense Promos for NBC's 'The Firm' Based on John Grisham's Novel


One clip features a pack of lawyers conspiring to keep Mitch McDeere quiet, while another one sees Mitch worrying about his life.

Gearing up to welcome the midseason, NBC has released the first two promos for its new series "The Firm". The videos do not explain the plotline, but manage to give a taste of how intense the story will be.

In one promo, a group of lawyers are discussing how much Mitch McDeere knows the truth about a case they handle. They apparently did something bad and face the risk of being jailed. In another sneak peek, Mitch looks panicked and is worrying about his safety. "It's happening again," he tells his wife Abby over the phone.

Based on the 1991 John Grisham novel of the same name, "The Firm" picks up 10 years after the events of the 1993 feature film which starred Tom Cruise. In the upcoming series, lawyer Mitch McDeere (Josh Lucas) comes out of near total isolation after his family spent a decade in the Federal Witness Protection Program.

While the McDeeres are ready to return to their old lives and leave the past behind them, old enemies return and new threats emerge. Now Mitch has no choice but to fight back if he ever hopes to return to some sense of normalcy.

Also starring Molly Parker as Abby, the drama show will have a two-hour premiere on Sunday January 8, 2012 at 9-11 P.M. ET before airing on its regular Thursday, 10 P.M. slot.
