Erin Brockovich-inspired Rebel begins April 8. Krista Vernoff executive produces and Katey Sagal stars. “Annie ‘Rebel’ Bello is a blue-collar legal advocate without a law degree. She’s a funny, messy, brilliant and fearless woman who cares desperately about the causes she fights for and the people she loves.
