|On January 4, 2015, I will be shutting down the server that hosts The TV IV website. It has been a very long time since I've been able to put any decent amount of time into the site, and ad revenue is plummeting. I think it is time to shut it down or hand it off to someone who can keep it going properly. If you are interested in taking over the site's code and data, contact administrators at tviv.org. --CygnusTMtalk|
The first season was arguably the first mainstream TV show following a single case through all the season's episodes. A young girl, Julie Costello, is found strangled in bed. After a short time, the young TV and movie star Neil Avedon is arrested for her murder. Ted Hoffman (played by Daniel Benzali) from the firm Hoffman and Associates takes on his defense, and the rest of the season follows the defense lawyers' continuing efforts to dig up evidence of Neil's innocence.
The second season saw large changes in the cast—most notably Anthony LaPaglia replaced Daniel Benzali as the leading character of the show. This season followed three murder cases. The show was cancelled at the end of the second season.
