In Things That Sound Like Garbage

A TV show based on John Grisham's The Firm, but set ten years after what happened in the book and the terrible film adaptation starring Tom Cruise: "After a difficult decade, which included a stay in the Federal Witness Protection program, Mitch and his family now emerge from isolation to reclaim their lives and their future—only to find that past dangers are still lurking and new threats are everywhere." Starring Josh Lucas.

Nope.

Why even call this shit The Firm? Are you seriously trying to tell me that film, which came out in '93, a year after the book was hot, still has the cachet to sell a television show which is just another Fugitive ripoff?

Because nope.
