NBC Develops New Legal Drama Tommy Supreme

Buzz In: What Is Your Favorite Legal Drama?

Love a juicy legal drama? Good news: NBC is developing a brand-new one called Tommy Supreme. The show will draw inspiration from real-life DC lawyer Tom Goldstein who has reportedly argued 21 cases in front of the Supreme Court. Insiders describe it as the "inverse House" — "a likable guy in the most unlikable profession."

Sounds interesting enough, but not exactly revolutionary. Just think of all the courtroom-based shows already on the air: the oldie-but-goodie Law & Order, the Glenn Close thriller Damages, or newcomer The Good Wife (which, I might add, has already earned a few of your votes for the best new show this year). If we go even further back, I loved Ally McBeal, Boston Legal and The Practice in their heydays. There's just something about the combination of behind-the-scenes personal drama with each week's new cases that's incredibly satisfying and suspenseful. I welcome Supreme to the mix — as long as it can stack up to its predecessors.

How about you? What is your favorite legal show (past or present)?

I just saw something that reminded me of the very short lived "Shark". I loved that show, it is really very sad that he passed away right after starting it!

Law and Order and Law & Order: SVU. No ifs, ands or buts!

Ally McBeal and dare I say it, L.A. Law! You did say past, right?

I've never watched Boston Legal, although my dad (a lawyer like me), says that it's actually sort of accurate, unlike some others (ahem, Ally McBeal, I'm talking to you). That said, I sort of love L&O, but I can't help yelling at the TV and trying to "correct" them.

I love them all! I could never pick just one! Ha Ha... The Good Wife is much better than I ever expected though!

They're all pretty much the same, except SVU because it's always uncomfortably disgusting. I like to watch things that are funny, pretty, or uplifting. It's bad for me to fill my subconscious mind with rape and murder tales right before bedtime.

I loved Boston Legal. I'm more into the CSI/Criminal Minds kind of dramas, but I do like The Good Wife when I catch it. SYTYCD and The Biggest Loser beat out The Good Wife on Tuesday night TiVO.

I watch the Good Wife, but it's not my favorite. Probably Law and Order: SVU is my favorite followed by Law and Order.
