Based on the feature film and best-selling novel by John Grisham, The Firm continues the story of attorney Mitchell McDeere and his family 10 years after the events in the 1991 novel and 1993 film that starred Tom Cruise as Mitch McDeere. As a young associate, McDeere brought down the prestigious Memphis law firm of Bendini, Lambert & Locke, which operated as a front for the Chicago mob. His actions changed his life forever. But, it’s now a decade later during which he and his family were protected in the Federal Witness Protection program. As the series begins, Mitch and his family have emerged from isolation to reclaim their lives and their future — only to find that past dangers are still lurking and new threats are everywhere. A Canada-U.S. co-production, the series is largely shot in Toronto with the exception of specific exterior U.S. locations.
