Forced out of Lockhart and Lee, they join Lucca Quinn (Cush Jumbo) at one of Chicago’s pre-eminent African American-owned law firms.
During season one, Baranski, Jumbo and Leslie, along with Delroy Lindo, Erica Tazel, Sarah Steele and Justin Bartha. Robert and Michelle King created the series and serve as showrunner/executive producers of the series, which they co-created with Phil Alden Robinson.
