Video: Josh Lucas Is In A Pickle In New ‘The Firm’ Promos

Josh Lucas the FirmNBC is bringing out the big guns come midseason. Their much buzzed-about series, The Firm, is set to premiere Jan. 12 and they’ve just released a tiny glimpse at what we’re in for.

The series is based on the John Grisham novel (and Tom Cruise movie) of the same name and follows lawyer Mitch McDeere (Josh Lucas), who spent the events of the film and the novel busting a Memphis law firm involved with the Chicago mob. Now, he and his family are coming off a decade in the Federal Witness Protection Program and things are getting shaky once more. The mob hasn’t forgotten McDeere and he gets tangled up in another seedy firm and a second enormous conspiracy begins.

The series also stars Juliette Lewis (Due Date, Whip It), Molly Parker (Deadwood), and Callum Keith Rennie (Battlestar Galactica,The Killing).

Celebrity Editor Kelsea Stahler was born in a pile of dirt. Okay, she was actually born in an old Naval hospital in San Diego, which then became a pile of dirt and remained as such for a number of years before becoming a parking lot perfectly sized for circus tents, and finally a museum. She eventually left San Diego to attend New York University, where she studied Journalism and English literature — two less-than profitable liberal arts degrees about which guidance counselors warned her. Against all odds, she now resides in Brooklyn, where she fights the constant fear that the locals will soon discover she isn’t quite cool enough to live there, and makes a living writing absurd, pop culture features about Batman, zombies, vampires, funny people, and Ron Swanson.
