Jury, The (ITV-1 2002 with Antony Sher and Derek Jacobi)

UK / ITV-1 – Granada / 6×60 minute episodes / Broadcast 17 February – 18 March 2002

Writer: Peter Morgan / Executive Producers: Peter Morgan, Andy Harries / Producer: Francis Hopkinson / Director: Pete Travis

Drama surrounding a controversial murder trial of a 15-year old Sikh schoolboy accused of brutally killing another boy.

A lot of the action tales place in the courtroom but this courtroom drama differs from others in that the jurors are not nameless extras (in fact they are all pretty big name performers) but are the focus of the drama and we peer into their personal lives away from the courtroom.
