What is Family Law about on The CW?

Kicking off CW’s October rollout for the rest of its fall line-up–Stargirl season 3 preceded the pack on Aug. 31–is Family Law. The series starring Jewel Staite and Victor Garber as an estranged father-daughter duo is a part of the network’s acquisition roster.

Staite plays Abigail Bianchi, a recovering alcoholic who hit rock bottom. Determined to get her family back, get her career in order, and find some sense of normal again, Abigail will do whatever it takes to crawl out of the hole she made herself. What she didn’t expect, however, was that a stipulation of her probation would be going to work at her father’s law firm.

Abigail hasn’t spoken to Harry in years, and now they’re meant to practice law together. Not to mention her new position means working with her two siblings, Lucy and Daniel Svensson, who she’s never met. They all have different mothers. Cue dysfunction, hard truths, and navigating old wounds.

Here’s more on the series.
