Michael Stuhlbarg and Sofia Black-D’Elia have joined the cast of Showtime’s upcoming 10-episode limited legal series “Your Honor.”
Stuhlbarg, known for films “Call Me By Your Name” and “The Shape of Water” and Black-D’Elia, known for HBO’s limited series “The Night Of” and MTV drama “Skins,” join previously announced “Breaking Bad” star Bryan Cranston. Stuhlbarg will play Tommy, the much-feared head of a crime family.
Showtime describes “Your Honor” as a legal thriller that rips through all strata of New Orleans society. Cranston stars as a respected judge whose son Adam (Hunter Doohan) is involved in a hit-and-run that leads to a high-stakes game of lies, deceit and impossible choices. Black-D’Elia will play Frannie, Adam’s girlfriend.
The limited series is executive produced by Robert and Michelle King (“The Good Fight,” “The Good Wife,” “Evil”) and Liz Glotzer (“Evil,” “The Good Fight”). Peter Moffat, whose British TV series “Criminal Justice” was the basis for “The Night Of,” serves as showrunner, executive producer and has written multiple episodes including the pilot.
Edward Berger (“Patrick Melrose”) will direct the first three episodes and also executive produce. Alon Aranya (“Hostages,” “Betrayal”) and Rob Golenberg (“Betrayal”) of Scripted World and James Degus of Moonshot Entertainment also serve as executive producers. The series is produced by CBS Television Studios in association with King Size Productions. It is adapted from the Israeli series “Kvodo,” created by Ron Ninio and Shlomo Mashiach. “Your Honor” stars production this fall.
