The Fix Plot: What is it about?
The central plot of the show revolves around Maya Travis (Tunney) — an L.A. district attorney — who faces a blowing defeat when trying to prosecute an A-list actor, accused of double murder. Faced with the aftermath of a derailed career, she retreats to a quieter place in Washington. However, when this same individual falls under suspicion for another murder, Travis returns to the DA’s office, in the hope of justice.
The show is co-written by Marcia Clark — who was the lead prosecutor of the O.J. Simpson murder case. Clark said that she wrote the script for the first five minutes of the series, by drawing inspiration from the Simpson trial. She further added, “You see an aspect of what I went through but after that, it’s all fiction.”
When asked about her role, Tunney said, “There’s a ton of acting involved in law. There’s the performance in court – that’s why we’re so drawn to it – and, let’s be honest, it’s not telling the truth a lot.”
