TNT- Raising The Bar - “No Child’s Left Behind”

As you have read on this blog before, we enjoy watching TNT's hit series Raising The Bar.

I was sent this Monday's (June 29th) episode to preview. As a mom and blogger this episode made me really think about what I post on the internet.With the proliferation of social networking sites, more and more parents are posting pictures of their families online. While this may seem like a safe and easy way to share photos with family and friends, it can potentially open the door to legal problems, as seen in an upcoming episode of TNT’s hit legal series RAISING THE BAR.

“No Child’s Left Behind” – Monday, June 29, at 10 p.m. (ET/PT)

When an innocent picture of a little boy in a bathtub winds up on a child pornographer’s Web site, Jerry has his hands full defending the father against Balco’s aggressive prosecution. During divorce negotiations, Bobbi’s soon-to-be ex-husband uses a loophole in the law that might result in Bobbi losing her apartment. The situation leads to her to consider finding a higher-paying job.

The question is posed in the episode, could a parent go to jail for posting pictures of their child online?

About show: RAISING THE BAR– Second season launched Monday, June 8th

This summer, court will be back in session with the return of this emotionally powerful legal drama from Emmy®-winning producer Steven Bochco. The series follows the cases and lives of young lawyers who work on opposite sides – the public defender’s office and the district attorney’s office – as well as those who sit in judgment on their cases. Mark-Paul Gosselaar (NYPD Blue) stars as idealistic defender Jerry Kellerman, while Gloria Reuben (ER) plays his passionate and protective boss, Rosalind Whitman. And Jane Kaczmarek (Malcolm in the Middle) plays imperious Judge Trudy Kessler, who has dreams of becoming the next district attorney. Co-starring in the series are Teddy Sears (Ugly Betty), Natalia Cigliuti (All My Children), Melissa Sagemiller (Sleeper Cell), Currie Graham (Boston Legal), J. August Richards (Conviction) and Jonathan Scarfe (Into the West).

RAISING THE BAR not only looks at courtroom battles but also the relationships among people on different sides, from the public defender trying to deal with her abusive, drug-addicted husband to the African-American assistant district attorney determined not to let himself be viewed as a racial token, from the judge who pushes the legal envelope in order to secure her political future to the legal aide who does everything he can to hide his homosexuality.

When it premiered last September, RAISING THE BAR was watched by 8.6 million viewers, ad-supported cable’s largest audience ever for a new series launch.
