Julianna Says....:

At the annual TCA tour, series star Julianna Margulies was asked about venturing into a new series so soon after her failed Fox series Canterbury's Law:

"For me, television is the medium for women. The richest characters I can find are on television. And it’s a lovely entry back into a place where, to now being be a mom and be able to play this role from a very different point of view, I never would have known the things that I know now back then. It’s a different phase of life."
