It is the result of collaboration between Nutmegger, Kem Nunn Stories, Inc, Groundswell Productions and Fox 21 Television Studios.
The series is built around the figure of a San Francisco-based forensic neuropsychiatrist Dr. Eldon Chance (Hugh Laurie) with a number of skeletons in his closet. He is inadvertently, but not completely unwillingly, drawn into the personal life of one of his patients. Mysterious and alluring Jaclyn Blackstone (Gretchen Mol) has an abusive police detective for a husband, and the city`s dark underbelly is revealed from the most unexpected angle as Dr. Chance delves deeper into the situation. While managing his own divorce, he has to save Jaclyn from her own troubled mind, her husband, and deal with troublesome issues like manipulation and corruption.
