Describing the legal thriller as ripping through all strata of the city’s society, Your Honor features Cranston as a respected New Orleans judge whose son Adam Desiato (Doohan) is involved in a hit-and-run that leads to a high-stakes game of lies, deceit and impossible choices.

Moffat serves as showrunner, executive producer and will write multiple episodes – including the first episode.

“Peter, Michelle and Robert have crafted an original thriller with gut-wrenching suspense, raw emotion and moral complexity, and we are simply ecstatic that Bryan Cranston, one of the planet’s finest actors, shares our enthusiasm and has agreed to play the lead. I can’t wait to shoot Your Honor and show it to the world!”

– Gary Levine, President of Entertainment, Showtime Networks

Based on Ron Ninio and Shlomo Mashiach‘s Israeli series Kvodo, Your Honor is co-produced by CBS TV Studios and King Size Productions. Liz Glotzer (The Good Fight, Castle Rock, The Shawshank Redemption), Alon Aranya, Scripted World’s Rob Golenberg (Hostages, Betrayal), and James Degus will also serve as executive producers.
