Adapted by series showrunner Peter Moffat (The Night Of) and stemming from executive producers Robert and Michelle King (The Good Fight), series star Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad), and showrunner Peter Moffat (The Night Of), Showtime's ten-episode series Your Honor shines a light on the various strata of New Orleans society when Cranston's Judge Michael Desiato discovers his son Adam was involved in a hit-and-run accident- or what appears to be a hit-and-run accident. What follows is a high-stakes game of lies, deceit, and impossible choices, as a father tests his own limits of just how far he will go – and the things he will do- to save his child.
Helluva' set-up, right? And the trailers and teasers released over the past several weeks have been giving us those "Cranston/Walter White" vibes in all the right ways. We're guessing Showtime's feeling the same way about it as we do because they've released the series-opener on YouTube for free. That right, even with the series set to debut Sunday night, December 6, it appears the cable network was a little too excited to wait any longer. Advantage: viewers. So to check out the opening chapter "Part One," look no further than the video below- with Your Honor airing on Sunday nights on Showtime:
YOUR HONOR is a 10-episode legal thriller starring Oscar® nominee and Emmy®, Golden Globe®, Screen Actors Guild® and Tony® Award winner Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad ). Respected New Orleans judge Michael Desiato (Cranston) must make a critical decision when his son, Adam (Hunter Doohan), is involved in a deadly hit-and-run accident. The ramifications of his choice rip through New Orleans society in a high-stakes game of lies and deceit that sparks issues of race, privilege and abuse of power.
Showtime's Your Honor also stars Hunter Doohan (Truth Be Told) as Cranston's son Adam, a high school senior who is involved in the hit-and-run accident. Margo Martindale (The Americans) recurs as Senator Elizabeth Guthrie, the mother of the deceased wife of Desiato. Maura Tierney (The Affair) portrays Fiona McKee, a fearless prosecutor trying a major case in Desiato's courtroom.
