CGiii Comment

First and foremost...there is no LGBT content in this...there may be a soupçon of lesbian subtext...but, that really is reading something into absolutely nothing!

Secondly...is this a pilot for a series? If it is, fine...all those unresolved storylines will - in time - be resolved.

If it is not a pilot...then, they should have told the writer!

It's an 'OK' drama made for television...boosted by the co-producer/star's ascension into the celebrity stratosphere!

The(ir) Blurb...

James Lapine’s family courtroom drama stars Viola Davis, Hayden Panettiere, and Catalina Sandino Moreno as the key players in a custody case set against the backdrop of the myriad struggles at New York Family Court. In one corner, there’s Sara (Moreno), a young, single mother of two who suddenly finds herself embroiled in a custody battle when her son’s teacher calls the Administration for Children’s Services regarding a cut above his eye. Then there’s Martha Schulman (Davis), a beleaguered family court judge struggling through a 23-year marriage to Jason (Tony Shalhoub), and finding that it might not be possible to compartmentalize work and home. Recent law school graduate Alexandra Fisher (Panettiere) is assigned to Sara’s case, and finds it brings up haunting memories of her own. Hanging over it all is the recent death of a young girl whom the system failed. At the heart of Custody, the individual is locked in a dance with the institution and human error butts up against broken systems.
