"Bluff City Law" Captures the City, But Does it Capture the Zeitgeist?

Sep 24, 2019


With much local fanfare, the first major network television series set and filmed in Memphis had its national debut Monday night. Bluff City Law (click here to watch) featured nearly every iconic location the city has to offer. The Commercial Appeal's film and features reporter John Beifuss has been following the production since the pilot was shot here in April. 

Beifuss says that though critical reception has so far been mixed, the story of an underdog law firm specializing in civil rights-style litigation may speak more to our current political leanings if not, so much, to our artistic expectations.
