Award-winning star from Breaking Bad – Bryan Cranston returns with a new crime drama Your Honor, a limited event series spanning 9 episodes. Created by showrunner Peter Moffat who was a former barrister himself, the racy series dives straight into the plot in the first episode itself. Respected New Orleans judge Michael Desiato follows the righteous path of justice every day until his son accidentally kills the heir of one of the largest organized crime families. Torn between protecting his own and abiding by the law, Michael gets embroiled in a high-stakes game of lies, deceit, and impossible choices.
Michael is shown to have a very unorthodox approach towards the justice system when he’s out on his morning jog and peeps in through the door of a family only to pronounce the cop guilty in a court case later into the episode. A man who holds the justice system in the highest regard will now need to play a dangerous game and save his son at any cost. With Your Honor, a parent’s biggest nightmare is brought to life.
As always Bryan Cranston mesmerizes us in his compelling performance of a courtroom judge and a loving father torn between two conflicting sides. Now at 64, age is just a number for this maverick actor. The high-octane energy he exudes in the show as a court toom judge draws a sharp parallel to his role of a loving father. Through the show’s complex characters, it explores the politics of race, policing, and privilege that defines the city of New Orleans. The strong supporting cast includes Hunter Doohan, Hope Davis as the mother to the son of the Baxter family and more sinister than her husband, Sofia Black-D’Elia, and Isiah Whitlock Jr.
A father’s greatest tragedy is to choose between love and loyalty.
