The Defenders: Vegas Lawyers Become a CBS Sitcom

"Pretend you're a professional." That's what one lawyer says to his co-counsel in CBS's new drama, "The Defenders." Jim Belushi and Jerry O'Connell joke and stomp around the TV courtroom as Las Vegas criminal defense lawyers. They're loosely based on real-life Las Vegas attorneys, Michael Cristalli and Marc Saggese. We talk to the real-life legal duo about their craziest cases, and what it's like to see their lives played out on TV.
