New Orleans judge Michael Desiato (Bryan Cranston) finds his respect for the law tested to destruction when his teenage son Adam (Hunter Doohan) accidentally runs over and kills another young man, Rocco Baxter (Benjamin Hassan Wadsworth), and flees the scene. The widowed Michael, devoted to his son, sets about concealing the crime: building alibis, erasing evidence and coaching Adam to lie to the police. Things are complicated however by the fact that the victim of the accident was the son of ruthless crime boss Jimmy Baxter (Michael Stuhlbarg, with Hope Davis as his Lady Macbeth), who is certainly not gonna let the death of his boy go unavenged.
Look, we’ve seen this before. Specifically, if you’ve seen the Israeli series Kvodo, you’ve quite literally seen this before. Your Honor is an American remake brought to us by English showrunner Peter Moffat (Cambridge Spies, Undercover).
