"The Guardian" is a CBS television drama series, which aired from September 25, 2001 to May 4, 2004. "The Guardian" has also aired in the United Kingdom on the Hallmark Channel and more recently on ABC1 (April 2006) and in Australia on Network Ten with re-runs airing on Arena.

The series revolved around protagonist Nick Fallin, a corporate attorney sentenced to 1500 hours community service with Legal Services of Pittsburgh as the result of a drug conviction. The plot focused on Nick's community service and recovery from drug addiction, as well as his strained relationship with his father who was President of the corporate law firm where Nick was employed full time. In the series, despite his ennui in the whole child welfare milieu, Nick is as vigorous representing his child clients as he is representing his corporate ones.

The theme song was "Empire in My Mind" performed by The Wallflowers. Farrah Fawcett appeared in several episodes as a troubled single mom and love interest of Burton Fallin. Lolita Davidovich appeared in several episodes as a social welfare advocate and love interest of Alvin Masterson. The show was set in Pittsburgh, PA, and was filmed in the city from time to time.
