Eli Stone is an American legal comedy-drama TV series, named for its title character. The series was created by Greg Berlanti and Marc Guggenheim, who also served as executive producers alongside Ken Olin who directed the pilot, with Melissa Berman producing. The series originally aired on ABC from January 31, 2008 to July 11, 2009. Before the end of its second season, the series was not renewed by ABC and was effectively cancelled.
The series follows Stone, a San Francisco lawyer who begins to have hallucinations, which leads him to two possible conclusions: a potentially fatal brain aneurysm, and the chance that something greater is at work. His visions lead him to accept cases with little monetary gain but a lot of moral goodness; Stone also predicts an earthquake that hits San Francisco. Other such events happen throughout the course of the series, however the series attracted relatively low ratings and was cancelled before reaching a coherent conclusion.
The series has subsequently aired around the world to mixed popularity, and both seasons have been released on DVD in Region 1.
