Look for Holmes Grad in Background of New TV Series
Criminal Defense, a new reality series on National Geographic (Insight Digital Channel 450) premieres Tuesday night at 10:00 & 10:30PM. If you look closely, you may catch a glimpse of a Holmes High School grad in the background. Genesis Fisher, a graduate of New York University Law School, works at the Brooklyn Legal Aid Society where the show is based. National Geographic describes the show as an "innovative new series" that "takes you inside a world of high stakes battles between public defender and prosecutor. Lives and the futures of entire families hang in the balance as our legal system tries to mete out justice for all. Founded on unprecedented access to Brooklyn's Legal Aid Society, in every case the very freedom of often-innocent client is at stake. These lawyers are overworked, underpaid, dedicated and tireless advocates - fighting tough battles in the hopes of achieving justice for their clients."
John CK Fisher is Genesis's father and works for the Northern Kentucky office of the Kentucky Human Rights Commission which is inside Covington City Hall. "This should be a good show," Fisher said in an email. "Genesis told me that she won't be one of the stars because she didn't want to sign a waiver and have the cameras follow her all day. She said she basically just wanted to do her work without too much intrusion. Still, we should be able to see Genesis in the background and the least that will happen is we see how her office goes to bat for those folks who can't afford an attorney."
"Perhaps with enough viewers they will do another show and then I can work on Genesis to be a star, which can only help her career. I want her to get a boost and maybe become Attorney General or United Nations Ambassador. Hey, a dad can dream, right?"
