TBH we didn’t know if Felicity Huffman would ever really return to television after the whole college acceptance scandal. But this is Hollywood and things are different there than the real world. So we shouldn’t be too shocked.
Her being on a show we’d watch – well that’s kinda shocking.
The Good Lawyer is set as a backdoor pilot during the March 6th episode of The Good Doctor. In the episode, “Dr. Shaun Murphy (Freddie Highmore) seeks legal representation to help him win a case and puts his faith in a promising, young lawyer, Joni DeGroot (McMann) who has obsessive compulsive disorder.”
The description continues, “The brilliant, funny and self-aware Joni is relatively new to her prestigious law firm when she takes Shaun’s case. Living with OCD, Joni has never wanted to be treated differently. While her symptoms take a toll on her personal and professional life, her attention to detail allows her to see cases through a different lens.”
Huffman’s character is a partner at the firm Joni works at. She’s described as, “partner at the law firm with a fierce intellect and dry wit.”
Does this sound like a show you will watch?
