The Good Wife creators Robert and Michelle King are headed back into the courtroom.
Showtime has given a series commitment to Your Honor, a legal thriller written by Peter Moffat (the UK’s Criminal Justice, which was the basis for HBO’s The Night Of) and executive-produced by the Kings.
Per the official description, the show “follows the son of a respected judge who is involved in a hit-and-run. Soon after, they are both drawn into a high-stakes game of lies, deceit and impossible choices when it comes to light that the victim was the son of a notorious crime boss.”
