"Benched" (TV show) is a single-camera courtroom comedy series on USA Network.

Eliza Coupe ("Happy Endings") stars as Nina Whitley, a distinguished corporate lawyer who has given up everything in her climb to the top. However, when she's hit with her ex-fiancé's engagement announcement and learns that she hasn't made partner at her high power firm, Nina snaps — breaking vases and burning bridges. Now that Nina is shunned from the corporate world, the only place she can get a job is at the Public Defender's office: home to the underfunded, understaffed, overworked, "if you can't afford a lawyer, one will be provided" lawyers. In addition to her new clients, Nina must learn to connect with her co-workers, including the roguish Phil (Jay Harrington, "Better Off Ted"), the idealistic Carlos (Oscar Nunez, "The Office"), the useless empathetic Cheryl (Maria Bamford, "Adventure Time") and the dedicated intern Micah (Jolene Purdy, "Under the Dome"). If that didn't sound tough enough for Nina, she'll also be going head-to-head with her ex-fiancé, Trent, (Carter MacIntyre, "Drop Dead Diva") the rising star of the District Attorney's office.

USA Network's "Benched" is produced by ABC Signature and The Mark Gordon Company. The series is from executive producers and writers Michaela Watkins ("Saturday Night Live," "Trophy Wife") and Damon Jones ("Halfway Home"). John Enbom, co-creator of the critically acclaimed comedy "Party Down," is also an executive producer. Mark Gordon ("Grey's Anatomy," "Criminal Minds," "Ray Donovan") and Andrea Shay ("Family Tools") are executive producing for The Mark Gordon Company.
