Tonight is the night. The always amazing Baron Vaughn officially joins the ranks of TV star when his new show, Fairly Legal, debuts on USA. The show stars the ultra sexy Sarah Shahi, who plays Kate, a former lawyer who starts becomes a mediator. While not technically a comedy it looks like a typical USA show that deals with serious stuff but man are those characters quirky.
Baron plays Leonardo Prince, who is:
resourceful, unflappable, and, thanks to his vast and varied connections — and seeming ability to know what Kate needs before even she knows she needs it — invaluable. Though dedicated to his harried boss and supportive of her at times unconventional methods, Leo is neither a career assistant nor an aspiring legal climber; he’s just biding time and cashing paychecks at Reed & Reed while he works on his true passion: a Watchman-like graphic novel.
Baron is one of the funniest and nicest guys working in comedy today and we wish him super amounts of success for his show and everything else.
The show debuts tonight (January 20th) at 10/9 c on USA. You can also catch him at at SF sketchfest.
