Eli Stone

(Thursdays, 10:00-11:00 p.m., ET)

Is it possible to change life midstream and get back to who you are at
your core? From Greg Berlanti ("Brothers & Sisters," "Dirty Sexy
Money," "Everwood") and Marc Guggenheim ("Brothers & Sisters," "Law
& Order," "The Practice") comes a story about a lawyer who finds
himself at a crossroads between the man he has become and the man he
wants to be... even if that means being a prophet.
Driven by ambition, Eli Stone (Jonny Lee Miller, "The Flying
Scotsman") has built a successful career at a top San Francisco law
firm in representing the biggest and richest corporations where
"screwing over the little guy" is common practice. After experiencing a
series of odd hallucinations, including a crooning vision of George
Michael, Eli turns to his neurologist brother, Nathan (Matt Letsher,
"The New Adventures of Old Christine"), only to be told there is
nothing wrong with him. As the visions persist, he's anxious to find
the cause of his delirium and seeks the help of Dr. Chen (James Saito,
"I Think I Love My Wife"), a Chinese acupuncturist who specializes in
holistic medicine. Though skeptical of his practice, Eli finds Dr. Chen
can help him recall important memories from his past.
Eli's visions continue to intensify and begin to affect his
practice, relationships and how he is perceived. But it's not until Eli
puts his own life in peril that Nathan recognizes similar episodes
their father shared and reconsiders what may be ailing his brother.
Upon another review of the symptoms and an MRI, Nathan discovers Eli is
suffering from an inoperable brain aneurysm that's causing his
If Nathan represents science, Dr. Chen represents faith. As Eli
struggles to cope with his diagnosis, he looks to Dr. Chen for his take
on the relationship of his revelations to his aneurysm. Dr. Chen
suggests there could be a divine answer for why he's having delusions
of grandeur - Eli may be a prophet.
While Eli is skeptical of being a prophet, his visions have helped
him to recall what his father once impressed upon him -- "You're meant
to do great things... speak inspired words... you're going to help
people." With his father's words in mind, Eli redefines his outlook on
life and his intent as a lawyer, beginning with a case in which he
represents an old acquaintance against one of his firm's most important
clients. Despite opposition from his imposing boss and future
father-in-law, Jordan Wethersby (Victor Garber, "Alias"), and fiancée
Taylor (Natasha Henstride, "Commander in Chief"), he chooses to stay
the course.
Eli's resolve will be further tested by his colleagues, who include
his sassy assistant, Patti (Loretta Devine, "Crash"), and fellow
counsel Matt Dowd (Sam Jaeger, "Catch and Release"), an ambitious,
competitive shark who exemplifies everything Jordan would like Eli to
be. He'll also be challenged by Maggie Dekker (Julie Gonzalo, "Veronica
Mars"), an inexperienced, junior associate who questions his commitment
to change.
"Eli Stone" stars Jonny Lee Miller as Eli Stone, Victor Garber as
Jordan Wethersby, Natasha Henstride as Taylor Wethersby, Loretta Devine
as Patti, Sam Jaeger as Matt Dowd, James Saito as Dr. Chen, Matt
Letsher as Nathan Stone and Julie Gonzalo as Maggie.
Greg Berlanti and Marc Guggenheim are co-creators and executive
producers. Chris Misiano ("The West Wing") also serves as executive
producer and director. The series is produced by ABC Studios.
