Mark Paul Gosselaar, Star of TNT's RAISING THE BAR, to Ring the NASDAQ Stock Market Opening Bell



WHAT: Mark Paul Gosselaar, star of TNT's RAISING THE BAR, will preside over the opening bell to celebrate the return of the show on June 8th. TNT's RAISING THE BAR is an emotionally powerful legal drama from Emmy (r)-winning producer Steven Bochco. It stars Mark-Paul Gosselaar (NYPD Blue, Saved by the Bell), Gloria Reuben (ER) and Jane Kaczmarek (Malcolm in the Middle). The series follows the cases and lives of young lawyers who work on opposite sides -- the public defender's office and the district attorney's office -- as well as those who sit in judgment on their cases. Bochco and lawyer/writer David Feige (author of Indefensible) created the show, which comes to TNT from ABC Studios and Bochco Media, with Bochco serving as executive producer and Feige as supervising producer. RAISING THE BAR is set to return on Monday, June 8, at 10 p.m. (ET/PT).
