FAIRLY LEGAL: Michael Trucco Talks About the Kate-Justin Dynamic

January 20, 2011 by  

FAIRLY LEGAL premieres on USA Network tonight, and if you’re a fan of their brand of quirky shows, you should definitely give the pilot a try.

Sarah Shahi plays Kate, a lawyer-turned-mediator, who can find the middle ground in any situation, no matter how minor it is. When Kate’s father dies, her work gets even more complicated, thanks to her new boss, Lauren — who also happens to be her dreaded stepmother.

And for television fans that are tired of the will-they-won’t-they drama male and female leads are generally put through, you won’t find that here.

Justin (Michael Trucco) and Kate are separated spouses who can’t quite stay away from each other, despite the dissolution of their marriage. No, things aren’t simple or clear cut, but it’s a fun new dynamic that doesn’t really get played out on TV that much.

I recently caught up with Trucco and we chatted about the relationship between Kate and Justin, what it’s like filming an entire season of a show before anyone sees it, plus the dynamics of working for USA Network…

    I’ve missed Sarah Shahi since NBC idiotically cancelled the best cop drama ever, Life. True, she was going to be on maternity leave anyway, but her character was one of the best ever, and Charlie Crews…. sigh.
    This one isn’t Life, but I’ll watch to see how it turns out.. looks promising.
