Benched (TV show) cast member Eliza Coupe
"Benched" (TV show) is a single-camera courtroom comedy series on USA Network that stars Eliza Coupe ("Happy Endings"), Jay Harrington ("Better Off Ted"), Oscar Nuñez ("The Office") and Jolene Purdy ("Gigantic").

The series focuses on Nina (Coupe), a dedicated, career-driven corporate attorney who has a very public nervous breakdown after getting passed up for an expected promotion, and finds herself working as a public defender. Her personal and professional worlds are turned upside down when
she joins the ranks of the legal world's underdogs and very quickly realizes that the law isn't quite as fair as she once thought. Harrington stars as Nina's new colleague, Phil, a tall, dark and handsome, if not a little scruffy, public defender and avid gambler.

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.
