Review: ‘Jones & Jury’

NBC is offering two previews of its new one-hour drama series, which will eventually settle into its 9-10 p.m. slot on Saturdays, in what may be a comfortable berth just preceding "Sisters." With Cicely Tyson and Melissa Gilbert as two barristers in a small Southern town, "Sweet Justice" opens with a sentimental mother-child meller; the magnolia folks are jim dandy, but Gilbert seems to be surface playing.
