"Eli Stone" stars Jonny Lee Miller in the title role as an attorney. In the first episode, Stone is discovered to have an inoperable brain aneurysm which is causing hallucinations. His acupuncturist, Dr. Chen, suggested that his hallucinations may be divinely inspired visions of the future. These visions often foreshadowed future cases and events, including an impending earthquake. Greg Berlanti, who co-wrote the show, described Eli Stone as "a Field of Dreams-type drama set in a law firm where a thirty-something attorney begins having larger-than-life visions that compel him to do out-of-the-ordinary things." Pop singer George Michael was featured prominently throughout the first season of the series, and each episode was named after one of his songs. Berlanti is a fan of Michael and made an effort to have him appear on the show. This led to the singer agreeing to do several episodes, including one in which Stone represents him in the case of a teen girl who plays the song "I Want Your Sex" in protest of an abstinence-only sex education programme in her school. Natasha Henstridge co-starred as Elix's ex-wife.
