Announcer: From the makers of "Blind Justice", comes a new drama. About overcoming the odds, and living your dream.

Deaf Judge: I graduated at the top of my class at Harvard Law. I was the youngest circuit judge in the history of New York State. Are you telling me that I can't be a judge anymore, just because I lost my hearing?

Doctor: [ solemnly ] I'm afraid so.

Deaf Judge: What?

Doctor: [ louder ] I'm afraid so!

Deaf Judge: Yeah, I can't hear you!

[ freeze-frame with title ]

Announcer: "Deaf Judge." Just because he's deaf, doesn't mean he's not listening.

Deaf Judge: What?

Deaf Judge: Hey! I'm deaf. I can't hear you.
