story of All Rise 2019:

A look at the personal and professional lives of the judges, lawyers, clerks, bailiffs and cops who work at an L.A. County courthouse.

ll Rise (stylized as all rise.) is an American legal drama television series created by Greg Spottiswood that premiered on CBS on September 23, 2019, as a Monday night entry in the 2019–20 television season. In May 2020, the series was renewed for a second season which premiered on November 16, 2020.

CBS’ “All Rise” is a new courthouse drama that follows the chaotic, hopeful, and sometimes absurd lives of its judges, prosecutors, and public defenders as they work with bailiffs, clerks, and cops to get justice for the people of Los Angeles, all set against the backdrop of a flawed legal system. It specifically follows a California prosecutor’s rise to the bench, as she pushes boundaries and challenges expectations of what a judge can be while contending with the resulting ramifications of her actions.

Simone Missick leads the series as newly appointed Judge Lola Carmichael, a highly regarded and impressive (former) deputy district attorney who doesn’t intend to sit back on the bench. She’s strong, smart, and compassionate, serving both as judge and counselor, often giving guidance to colleagues, as well as lawyers and their clients. Though she’s initially intimidated as a first-time judge, and remains green about how the system works from her new position, it’s that naïveté that allows her to be unorthodox in her methods — bucking the status quo (of course) and shocking the establishment judges and attorneys who are used to a certain way of doing things.
