Many lawyers consider themselves prophets, but Eli Stone may be the real deal. Eli has built a successful career at a top law firm in San Francisco, representing only the biggest and richest corporations that make a habit of messing with the little guy. Eli is trying to find a deeper meaning in life while trying not to lose his job and destroy his relationship with the bosses' daughter after he experienced a series of odd hallucinations. Eli wonders if his condition is truly medical or if he has a higher calling after he discovers a brain injury.
Eli Stone is an American legal comedy-drama television series, named for its title character. The series was created by Greg Berlanti and Marc Guggenheim, who also served as executive producers alongside Ken Olin who directed the pilot, with Melissa Berman producing. The series originally aired on ABC from January 31, 2008 to July 11, 2009, for two seasons.The series follows Stone (Jonny Lee Miller), a San Francisco lawyer who begins to have hallucinations (such as a George Michael soundtrack that only he can hear and getting dive-bombed by a World War I biplane on a busy San Francisco street) which leads him to two possible conclusions: a potentially fatal brain aneurysm, or the chance that something greater is at work. His visions lead him to accept cases with little monetary gain but a lot of moral goodness; Stone also predicts an earthquake that hits San Francisco. Other such events occur throughout the course of the series, but the series was cancelled before reaching a coherent conclusion.The series has been met with generally favorable reviews from critics, and both seasons have been released on DVD.
