NBC has had mixed results with its freshman comedies during the 2016-17 television season. Although Powerless is struggling and may well be cancelled, The Good Place did well enough to be renewed for a second season. Will the Trial & Error TV show prove a success for The Peacock Network? Will it be cancelled or renewed for season two? Stay tuned.
A scripted comedy series airing on NBC, the first season of Trial & Error stars Nicholas D’Agosto, John Lithgow, Krysta Rodriguez, Steven Boyer, Jayma Mays, and Sherri Shephed. The story centers on new lawyer Josh Segal (D’Agosto). To tackle his first case, this New Yorker sets out for the tiny Southern town of East Peck. There, he must defend an eccentric, “rollercizing” poetry professor, Larry Henderson (John Lithgow), who has been accused of murdering his wife. Rounding out the rest of the defense team are a group of quirky locals: Larry’s daughter Summer Henderson (Rodriguez), former cop and lead investigator Dwayne Reed (Boyer), along with Carol Anne Keane (Mays) and Anne Flatch (Shepherd).
