The Lyon's Den is a 2003 television series set in Washington, D.C. The legal drama starred Rob Lowe as a lawyer called Jack Turner, newly appointed as partner of a long-established law firm that, as the plot revealed, harbored some dark secrets. Much of the plot centred around the firm's internal politics, and on Turner's attempts to uncover information on some of the firm's conspiracies, all the while acting as the defense for some of the firm's higher-profile clients in a different case each episode. Spearheaded by Lowe, who was also executive producer, the cast included Matt Craven, Elizabeth Mitchell, Kyle Chandler, Frances Fisher, and David Krumholtz. The series premiered on the American television network NBC on September 28, 2003, but although thirteen episodes were ordered and produced, only six aired before NBC cancelled the show due to poor ratings. When five bought the UK terrestrial TV rights to the series in 2004, it aired all thirteen episodes.
