Showtime has ordered new legal drama YOUR HONOR straight to series, the premium cable network announced Thursday.
The series, based on the Israeli series Kvodo, will be executive produced and written by Criminal Justice’s Peter Moffat and executive produced by Robert and Michelle King, the team behind CBS’ The Good Wife.
Your Honor is a legal thriller that 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 Chicago crime boss.
“When a pitch has you on the edge of your seat for 40 straight minutes, you know you’re hearing something special,” said Gary Levine, Showtime’s President of Programming, in a statement. “When the pitchers are as talented, experienced and acclaimed as Michelle King, Robert King and Peter Moffat, you buy it in the room and start planning for a fascinating new Showtime series.”
The series is from CBS Television Studios in association with King Size Productions adapted from the Israeli series Kvodo, created by Ron Ninio and Shlomo Mashiach, produced by Ram Landes and airing on the country’s Yes TV.
