The Grinder is an American single-camera legal comedy television series created by Jarrad Paul and Andrew Mogel.

Premise Edit

The series follows television actor Dean Sanderson, Jr., who returns to his hometown of Boise, Idaho after his long-running television series, The Grinder, ends. Though Dean is not a lawyer, he believes that his experience in playing one on television makes him qualified to practice law. He decides to join his family's law firm, Sanderson & Yao, much to the chagrin of his younger brother Stewart, who is a real-life lawyer. Stewart and a new hire named Claire are the only two who seem to understand that Dean's television experience does not qualify him for a job at a real law firm.

Why It Was Cancelled Edit

The show never achieved high ratings, despite receiving high acclaim from critics and viewers.
