The new law drama, “Bluff City Law,” premiered Monday night on NBC. The justice-seeking legal TV show filmed in both Memphis and Oxford portrays familiar scenes of the Lafayette County Courthouse.

However, the courthouse is not the only “piece” of Oxford found in the show.

Several Oxford residents had the opportunity to partake in the filming process portraying jurors. The filming took place March 11-13 inside Oxford’s downtown courthouse.

Michelle Bright said although the extras were not allowed to take pictures directly onset, she was able to snap a few “silly selfies” with the other jurors while waiting “backstage,” or the holding room or holding area, while waiting to be called to set.

“Our call time that first day was 4 a.m., so we were pretty beat, most of running on two hours of sleep or less,” Bright said.

NBC describes the show as “a powerful new legal drama.” It joins the ranks of NBC legal staples “Law and Order,” “Shades of Blue” and “Chicago P.D.”

“Coming from a famous Memphis family known for taking on injustice, brilliant lawyer Sydney Strait [Caitlin McGee] used to work at her father Elijah’s (Jimmy Smits) celebrated law firm until their tumultuous relationship got in the way. After barely speaking to him for years, Sydney is suddenly thrust back into the family fold when her philanthropist mother passes away unexpectedly. In the wake of her loss, hoping to reconnect with the daughter he loves, Elijah asks Sydney to rejoin his firm. She agrees because, despite her lingering resentment and distrust, she knows that working alongside her father is her best hope at changing the world…if they can ever get along,” NBC describes the show.

“Bluff City Law” airs on Mondays at 10/9c on NBC.
