The Fix

10 p.m. ET on ABC – Series Premiere

As a courtroom prosecutor, Marcia Clark failed to win a guilty verdict with murder defendant O.J. Simpson, but she may get the last word, after a fashion, in this new legal drama, on which she’s a co-writer and executive producer. Robin Tunney (“The Mentalist”) stars as prosecutor Maya Travis, who goes into self-imposed seclusion after failing to make a murder case against a charismatic celebrity (Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, “Lost”). Years later, though, Maya’s called back to work when the same star is similarly accused. Adam Rayner, Merrin Dungey, Marc Blucas, Breckin Meyer and Scott Cohen also star.
