20 Shows Like Costumes You Need To Watch
Starring screen legend Kathy Bates (“Misery”) as Harriet “Harry” Korn, “Harry’s Law” was a short-lived legal comedy-drama from “Ally McBeal” creator David E. Kelley. and “The Practice”. Beginning in 2011, the series ran for two years and saw Korn, like “Suits” star Harvey Specter, as a freer lawyer who does things differently. Never as intense as most other lawyer shows, “Harry’s Law” was more of an offbeat legal comedy that played on the ridiculous and never took itself too seriously.
On the show, Bates was cast perfectly as the obnoxious Harry Korn, whose disillusionment with her profession made her the ideal lawyer for unlucky cases in need of a dogged defense. Legal Proceedings also found clever ways to present controversial topics with a new twist, with episodes involving cases of affirmative action, workplace discrimination and sexual assault. He managed something difficult to do in an overexposed genre by delivering something interesting and fresh. Although it was a ratings success, it ended after two seasons.
