In the beginning of the new series Game of Silence, successful lawyer Jackson Pogue (David Lyons) is sitting on top of the world. That is, until he gets a visit from his childhood friends. Twenty-five years ago, with Jackson at the wheel, they were in a car accident that left a woman dead. Jackson and his pals served nine months in a violent youth detention facility. Now one of his friends is in trouble with the law and Jackson is called on to defend him. While trying to fight for his friend, Jackson also has to deal with clients including Diana Stockman, the CEO of a huge conglomerate who doesn’t trust men.
Diana Stockman is portrayed by Sharon Lawrence. She’s known for her roles on Rizzoli & Isles (Dr. Hope Martin), Drop Dead Diva (Bobbie Dobkins), One Tree Hill (Sylvia Baker), Monk (Linda Fusco), Desperate Housewives (Maisy Gibbons), and NYPD Blue (ADA Sylvia Costas), among many others. Game of Silence will premiere on NBC on April 12 at 10pm.
