THE DEEP END Premieres Tonight

ABC's newest drama, THE DEEP END, premieres tonight at 8 p.m. ET. Fresh out of law school, THE DEEP END, starring Billy Zane, follows five new law associates as they learn that there’s more to law, love, and money than they ever could have imagined. Thrown into the deep end of the pool, these newbies will either sink or swim.

In the premiere episode, “Pilot,” Dylan (Matt Long, JACK & BOBBY) is given an impossible pro bono custody case, Beth (Leah Pipes) keeps mum when a 90-year-old man signs an agreement thinking that she’s his daughter, Liam (Ben Lawson) must get a client to sign with the firm under false pretenses, Addy (Tina Majorino) finally gets some attention from her boss when she speaks her mind, and Malcolm (Mehcad Brooks) gets off on the wrong foot when he’s hired outside of the firm’s traditional process.

While these five ambitious associates struggle to adjust their appetites and ideals to the fast-paced demands of their jobs, they’re faced with the warring partners at Sterling who hold the keys to their future, and a reluctant mentor, Rowdy (Norbert Leo Butz), who tries to guide them and the firm through the trenches. For Dylan, saving face with one partner in particular is much more difficult after he falls for the firm’s paralegal -- unbeknownst to him, she’s already in bed with firm partner Cliff Huddle (Billy Zane), who is married to fellow partner Susan Oppenheim (Nicole Ari Parker) and fighting for the soul of the firm with its namesake, Hart Sterling (Clancy Brown).
