WE tv Sets Two Legal-Based Series

WE tv has greenlit two new law-based reality series that will debut in 2016, network executives said Tuesday.

Ladies Of Law follows a group of four African-American female lawyers specializing in entertainment law in New York City, while Sisters In Law follows the exploits of five Texas-based, African-American female civil and criminal lawyers, according to the network.

“Legal dramas have long been a popular TV genre but have not been represented in the unscripted space -- until now,” said Marc Juris, WE tv’s president said in a statement. “The very nature of ‘the law’ coupled with the intense personalities of lawyers gives us a wide range of storylines and characters to showcase.  Behind each of these attorneys is a rich story waiting to be told.”
