We don't normally make a habit of paying attention to TNT's bro-tastic lawyer buddy comedy 'Franklin & Bash,' set to air its third season this summer on the Turner network, but some news is far too good-looking to ignore. We've just learned that one-time 'Melrose Place' hottie Heather Locklear has officially joined the cast of 'Franklin & Bash' season 3 in a series regular role, but who will the lovely lady Locklear be playing?

Fans of TNT's Mark Paul Gosselaar / Breckin Meyer-fronted buddy-barrister comedy 'Franklin & Bash' were disappointed to learn that series regular Garcelle Beauvais wouldn't return for the third season, producers believing her character Hanna Linden had largely run her course. Thankfully, TNT has decided to pick up the slack and then some, casting the babe-tastic Heather Locklear in a series regular role in her place!

Debuting in the show's third season this summer, Locklear will take the role of Rachel King, a "stunning trial lawyer, with stiletto heels and clothes tailored within an inch of their life." What, you were expecting a janitor?

TNT's 'Franklin & Bash' will mark the first series regular role for Locklear since 2004 drama 'LAX' and prior to that, 'Spin City.' Locklear has recently made guest appearances on 'Hot in Cleveland,' and the now-failed reboot of 'Melrose Place.'

What say you? Is Heather Locklear enough of a reason for you to tune into 'Franklin & Bash' season 3?
