Just as courtroom drama ramps up behind-the-scenes of “Desperate Housewives” comes word that one of the show’s characters is courting legal trouble on-screen.

Scott Bakula has just signed a deal for a multi-episode arc to play an attorney on the ABC dramedy, now in its eighth and final season.

While ABC has not revealed too many details, Bakula is expected to play a lawyer hired to defend Bree (Marcia Cross) in a murder trial, reports TV Line.

Bakula was last seen on TV in the acclaimed-but-canceled TNT comedy, “Men of a Certain Age.”
