Everything about the Matlock series

Grobglas will portray the law firm’s incredible jury consultant, Shae Banfield, also known as “the Meerkat.” She is known as a human lie detector because of her mastery of body language, facial expressions and neurolinguistics, which makes her a worthy competitor to brilliant attorney Olympia Lawrence (Marshall) and an impending threat to Madeleine Matlock (Bates).

Leah Lewis and David Del Rio will also feature in the series. Along with Bates, Eric Christian Olsen, Joanna Klein, John Will and director Kat Coiro of the pilot, Urman serves as executive producer.

Grobglas portrayed Petra, a series regular on the highly rated Jane the Virgin, for five seasons and later appeared as Petra’s twin sister Anezka. She also appeared as the villain PSI in Supergirl and presently voiced Margot in Max’s animated series Gremlins.
