Gandolfini had played the attorney in the pilot episode. The star of "The Sopranos" died in June at age 51 after suffering a heart attack.

"Criminal Justice" was one of Gandolfini's last projects. Another is the film "Enough Said," which is in theaters now.

An air date for "Criminal Justice" hasn't been announced.
