Reality show will feature lawyers giving advice to peopleScott Sternberg Prods. is partnering with Weinberger Media to produce "Legal Ease," 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 repped such clients as Diana Bianchi in the Christie Brinkley case and New York Post writer Jared Paul Stern in the Page Six/Ron Burkle scandal.
"Joseph Tacopina is unquestionably one of the premier defense attorneys in the land," Scott Sternberg said. "More than ever before, people are in need of legal expertise, and we are partnering with Tacopina Law to help share his wealth of knowledge."
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 cablers or taken out as a syndicated first-run strip.
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.
