Their professional partnership begins when her law firm hires Todd as an in-house investigator. Described as the black sheep of the Wright family, Todd is laid back, quick thinking, and an excellent former private detective who fell on hard times when his interpretation of the law resulted in him having his license revoked.

“So Help Me Todd has charmed viewers with the incomparable chemistry between Marcia Gay Harden and Skylar Astin,” said Amy Reisenbach, president of CBS Entertainment. “With the series’ unique blend of captivating legal drama, laugh-out-loud humor, and intriguing family dysfunction, it’s no wonder the audience continues to grow. I am delighted that these two inimitable characters and their entertaining banter will extend into a second season.”

Along with the Academy Award-winning Harden and Astin, So Help Me Todd features Madeline Wise, Tristen J. Winger, Inga Schlingmann, and Rosa Arredondo. Meanwhile, the show from CBS Studios is executive produced by Scott Prendergast, Elizabeth Klaviter, Dr. Phil McGraw, Stuart Gillard, Jay McGraw, and Julia Eisenman.
