CBS Pulls the Plug on Drama Series MADE IN JERSEY with Donna Murphy
Deadline reports that CBS has pulled the plug on their freshman drama series MADE IN JERSEY. The low-rated series will be replaced by the network's 'Undercover Boss' beginning November 2. Made In Jersey opened to strong ratings before falling a steep 27% to a 0.8/3 last Friday.
MADE IN JERSEY followed a young working-class woman who uses her street smarts to compete among her pedigreed Manhattan colleagues at a prestigious New York law firM. Martina Garretti finds her firm’s cutthroat landscape challenging, but what she lacks in an Ivy League education she more than makes up for with tenacity and blue-collar insight.
After just a few weeks, firm founder Donovan Stark takes note of Martina’s ingenuity and resourcefulness, as does third-year chair Nolan Adams, who is part of Manhattan’s royal literati; Riley Prescott, a second-year at Stark & Rowan and the daughter of the former U.S. Ambassador to Sweden; her sassy secretary, Cyndi Vega; and River, a former LAPD detective turned firm investigator. With the support of her big Italian family, including her sexy older sister Bonnie and her encouraging mother Darlene, Martina is able to stay true to her roots as a bold, passionate lawyer on the rise in a new intimidating environment.
