With Nancy Drew wrapped on its final season, lead actress Kennedy McMann has been cast as the lead in another highly anticipated series, The Good Lawyer. Felicity Huffman (Desperate Housewives) is set as a co-lead in the proposed spin-off of The Good Doctor, ABC’s popular medical procedural.
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, Joni DeGroot (McMann), who has obsessive-compulsive disorder.
The brilliant, funny, and self-aware Joni is new to her prestigious law firm when she takes Shaun’s case. Living with OCD, Joni has never wanted to be treated differently. While her symptoms take a toll on her personal and professional life, her attention to detail allows her to see cases through a different lens. McMann herself has OCD and has been open with her diagnosis of the disorder, making her a prime choice for the character.
ABC has released images for the episode whose air day was moved by one week from its initially announced date to March 13. Check out the images below!
Be sure to catch the episode on March 13 at 10 p.m. EST on ABC and we will continue to bring you the latest news on The Good Lawyer.
