Grace vs Abrams Cast: Who is in it?
‘Grace vs Abrams’ stars former attorneys Nancy Grace and Dan Abrams.

What is Grace vs Abrams About?
‘Grace vs Abrams’ follows two of the most prolific prosecutors and legal personalities as they try to dissect some of the most high profile legal cases that rocked America. Very often, a legal system, no matter how strong, fails at delivering justice.
This has happened across the world, and sometimes these trials are much-publicized due to their controversial nature. The prime reason for such failures is often the lack of evidence or faulty investigations that allow the suspects to slide through and escape the law. A&E Network’s ‘Grace vs Abrams’ aims at re-visiting such cases and re-investigate collected evidence.
The two prosecutors, Nancy Grace and Dan Abrams engage in a debate in front of a live audience. They are prolific in their ability to analyze a legal situation and very often put forward statements that contradict each other. As viewers, ‘Grace vs Abrams’ is a treat to watch as we get to see a very new perspective each time they put forward their opinions.
The debates usually are heated but the two prosecutors do not tend to drift from their prime purpose of delivering justice. The live audience setting gives the show a reactive feel. Some of the cases explored in the show include the case of Casey Anthony, who was found not guilty of murdering her own daughter, the case of the disappearance of Nancy Grace, and the murder of Chandra Levy.
These are some of the most publicized cases in America involving prominent figures. The cases, however, are either unsolved or have an unsatisfactory verdict. The show also re-visits the murder of actor Robert Blake’s wife, Bonny Lee Bakley. Robert was charged of murder but was later acquitted due to a lack of evidence.
Both Grace and Abram put forward their perspectives on the case as the debate heats up. The show manages to sharply pierce the gaps in these cases as questions are raised by both prosecutors that shake the foundations of all the evidence collected.
‘Grace vs Abrams’ is one of the most intelligent shows out there. The genius of the show comes out only because of its prolific legal minds. If you are someone who enjoys the strategic thought that goes behind legal investigations, this is one show you should not miss.
