The Deep End premiered on ABC on January 21, 2010. In a city where wealth and power rule, everyone strives to make it to the top. For five eager and attractive law associates, being accepted into one of Los Angeles' most prestigious law firms is the first step on their way up. But as they soon realize, the law offices of Sterling are far more cutthroat than they could have ever imagined and they must fight for themselves and their clients to stay afloat in these shark infested waters. These impressionable associates are immediately thrown into cases and forced to deal with emotional and ethical decisions that come with the job they've worked so hard for.
