LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - John Larroquette is set to co-star opposite Jason Isaacs on the Fox drama pilot "Pleading Guilty."

A legal thriller based on Scott Turow's book, "Guilty" chronicles the embezzlement, bookmaking, offshore banking and politics of a high-powered law firm. It centers on Mack (Isaacs), a cop-turned-attorney.

Larroquette will play the patrician managing partner of the firm, who recruited him.

"Guilty" marks Larroquette's return to the legal-drama beat after his recent regular role on "Boston Legal," where he also played a senior partner at a top law firm. He won an Emmy for his guest role on "The Practice" and four Emmys for playing an assistant district attorney on the sitcom "Night Court."
