A New York law firm is the subject of a new reality series, Legal Ease.
Scott Sternberg Prods. is partnering with Weinberger Media to produce the show, featuring the New York law firm of Tacopina Siegel & Turano.
The daily reality show will revolve around lawyers giving advice to everyday people. Stories will be shot on location, and advice will be dished out in-studio by Joseph Tacopina, head of the firm, and a panel of legal eagles.
Tacopina's firm has represented such clients as Diana Bianchi, the other woman in Christie Brinkley's divorce case against Peter Cook, and New York Post writer Jared Paul Stern in the Page Six/Ron Burkle extortion scandal.
Sternberg, Tacopina and Scott Weinberger, an investigative reporter and head of Weinberger Media, will serve as executive producers on Legal Ease. It's unclear whether the project will be pitched to nonfiction-oriented cable networks or taken out as a syndicated weekday series.
Sternberg Prods.' recent credits include Shatner's Raw Nerve (Bio Channel), The Academy (Fox Reality) and Catch 21 (GSN). Weinberger Media recently launched On the Case With Paula Zahn for Discovery Networks.
