Not a bad program
11 April 1999 | by Fred-172See all my reviews

Leg Work was a clever program that ran on CBS for a few months in 1987. The writing was good and it had an excellent cast that did a great job. Among the actors who would go on to do other things: Complete credited cast:

Margaret Colin (Independence Day) and Francis McDormand(Fargo). What stinks is that this show had enormous potential. However, it was thrown on Saturdays where it died quick. It has shown up on FoxNet and Lifetime once in a while. Hopefully some other network will get smart and pick it up again.
