New TV Show to Feature Lawyer Turned Mediator
"Kate" centers on Kate Reed (Shahi), a top litigator who, frustrated with the bureaucracy and injustice she witnesses in legal system, decides to become the ultimate anti-lawyer: a mediator.
USA president of original programming and UCP co-head Jeff Wachtel said that the network tends to stay away from franchises but liked the different approach to a legal drama with a mediator.
"This is someone who lives in a world of a constant conflict," he said. "With traditional lawyers, it's always one wins, one loses; in mediation, the goal is to have win-win."
