Showtime has found the face of Bryan Cranston‘s on-screen son for its upcoming new drama Your Honor, with Hunter Doohan (What/If, Westworld) set the join the series as co-lead opposite the Breaking Bad actor. Based on Israeli drama Kvodo and originating from Peter Moffat (Criminal Justice) and Robert and Michelle King (The Good Wife), Cranston will not only star in but will also executive produce the 10-episode limited series – set to begin production in and around the New Orleans area later this year.
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

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.
