About TNT's Franklin & Bash
TNT's Franklin & Bash stars Breckin Meyer as Jared Franklin and Mark-Paul Gosselaar as Peter Bash, two young, fly-by-the-seat-of-their-pants street lawyers who caused a seismic Culture Clash when they joined a legendary, button-down law firm. Jared loves sticking it to authority every chance he gets. Peter, meanwhile, has a knack for connecting with judge and jury any way he can.
This season, Heather Locklear joins the Franklin & Bash cast as Rachel King, the firm's newest partner. She's a stunning trial lawyer with stiletto heels and clothes tailored within an inch of their life. Malcolm McDowell returns as Renaissance man Stanton Infeld, the brilliant and eccentrically spontaneous patriarch of the law firm. Also starring are Reed Diamond, Dana Davis and Kumail Nanjiani.
In its second season last summer, Franklin & Bash averaged 4.3 million viewers, up 10% over its first season. The buddy drama also averaged 1.8 million adults 18-49 and 2.0 million adults 25-54.
Franklin & Bash is produced by Four Sycamore Productions, Left Coast Productions and FanFare Productions in association with Sony Pictures Television. Jamie Tarses, Jason Ensler, Kevin Falls, Matthew McGuinness and Bill Chais serve as executive producers.
