Disney’s ABC has announced details on the premiere of “The Good Lawyer”, which is going to be an embedded pilot within the latest season of “The Good Doctor”, which will premiere on ABC on Monday, 13th March 2023, and it will stream the next day on Hulu. ABC has done something similar in the past with “Station 19”, which was a spin-off of “Grey’s Anatomy”.
In the episode, Dr. Shaun Murphy (Freddie Highmore) seeks legal representation to help him win a case and puts his faith in a promising, young lawyer who has obsessive compulsive disorder. The episode is written by co-showrunners David Shore and Liz Friedman, and directed by Ruben Fleischer.
Guest starring is Kennedy McMann (“Nancy Drew”) as Jodi DeGroot, the brilliant, funny and self-aware lawyer who is relatively new to her prestigious law firm when she takes Shaun’s case; Felicity Huffman (“American Crime”) as Janet Stewart, a highly regarded attorney and partner at the law firm with a fierce intellect and dry wit; and Bethlehem Million as Abbie, Joni’s compassionate, practical slightly older sister. A voice of reason, she is Joni’s biggest cheerleader, roommate and best friend.
