Synopsis

After finally being named the most successful Law Office in New York City, Wallace and French Law Ltd. are chosen to be the focus of a documentary following a year in their life. While Wanda (Tina Fey) is delighted by the idea, her partner Katie French (Amy Poehler) isn't so keen. Things are going well for the pair until longtime rival Gary Garison (Ricky Gervais) returns to New York from London with plenty of tricks up his sleeve and also to reclaim the love of his ex-girlfriend Tonya Lake (Maya Rudolph) despite her being a polyamorous relationship with Martin and Marsha Wilson (Steve Carrell and Kate McKinnon).
