Jeremy Sisto The Jury

Jeremy Sisto is taking another stab at an ABC anthology series.

On the heels of last fall’s quickly-cancelled Wicked City, the actor has boarded The Jury, ABC’s drama pilot that follows a single murder trial through the eyes of the individual jurors.

Sisto will star opposite The Good Wife‘s Archie Panjabi as Dan, a well-dressed, handsome and professor-like juror who is widely liked by the rest of the group.
