‘Franklin & Bash’ Episode Guide (Aug. 13): Client’s Sanity Questioned

“The Curse of Hor-Aha” Season 4 Premiere (08/13/14) – Four months after the arrest of Stanton Infeld, Peter and Jared find themselves in charge of the newly renamed Infeld, Daniels, Franklin & Bash. Enter Mason Trawley (guest star Kevin Christy) an archaeologist who believes he’s been unfairly locked out of a storage unit containing many treasured artifacts, among which is the death mask of Egyptian Pharaoh Hor-Aha.

Peter and Jared agree to take Trawley’s case, but soon find themselves questioning their client’s sanity when a former professor claims Trawley is unstable and possibly dangerous. Peter, and Jared hire private investigator Dan Mundy (new series regular Anthony Ordonez) to discreetly search the firm’s computers for evidence that might exonerate Infeld of his supposed crimes.

Meanwhile, Ellen Swatello (guest star Rhea Seehorn) the newest partner to join the IDFB ranks, defends a Medical Marijuana Dispensary in danger of being closed in order for a Day Care Center to open up down the street, resulting in a weed-iation. Also joining the firm is young attorney Anita Haskins (new series regular Toni Trucks).

TNT’s “Franklin & Bash” centers on Jared Franklin (Breckin Meyer) and Peter Bash (Mark-Paul Gosselaar), two young, fly-by-the-seat-of-their-pants street lawyers who caused a seismic culture clash when they joined Infeld-Daniels, a legendary, button-down law firm. The patriarch of the firm – the brilliant and eccentrically spontaneous Renaissance man Stanton Infeld (Malcolm McDowell) – hired them because he admires how Jared sticks it to authority every chance he gets and how Peter is able to forge a personal connect with both judge and jury.

Since hanging their shingle at Infeld-Daniels, Peter and Jared have repeatedly butted heads with fellow lawyers, especially Damien Karp (Reed Diamond), who disapproves of their casual style and law-skirting methods. Karp also happens to be Stanton Infeld’s nephew.

“Franklin & Bash” is executive-produced by Jamie Tarses, Kevin Falls and Bill Chais. The show launched on TNT in 2011 and went on to rank as one of basic cable’s Top 5 new series that summer.
