Franklin & Bash

Franklin & Bash


Franklin & Bash follows Jared Franklin (Breckin Meyer) and Peter Bash (Mark-Paul Gosselaar), lawyers who chase down their clients. They will stop at nothing to get a new client right after a car accident, arrest for solicitation or any other incident. Just as long as they can get a break. Often called "Ambulance Chasers" Jared and Peter explode in the courtroom with their flair and dramatics. Despite all the flair and pizaz, they are really good lawyers that know their job. When Stanton Infeld (Malcolm McDowell), owner of Infeld Daniels, a top law firm in Los Angeles comes in, he sees himself in the men and try to recruit them. Jared and Peter have legal aides Carmen (Dana Davis) and Pindar (Kumail Nanjiani) to help keep them organized.

However, when Infeld's nephew Damien Karp (Reed Diamond) gets wind that Infeld wants the new lawyers, he quickly changes tactics and when they arrive, Jared and Peter also threaten Karp's romantic relationship with Hanna Linden (Garcelle Beauvais), a lawyer who automatically likes Jared. Once settled, Jared and Peter take on a variety of clients. However, their friendship is torn now that they are in a corporate atmosphere and the quest is on as to who will survive the cut.
