Trial and Error (NBC 2017, John Lithgow, Nicholas D’Agosto)

In fish-out-of-water sitcom Trial and Error, bright-eyed New York lawyer Josh Simon heads to a tiny Southern town for his first big case. His mission? To defend an eccentric, ‘rollercizing’ poetry professor (John Lithgow, ‘3rd Rock From the Sun’) accused of the bizarre murder of his beloved wife.

Settling into his makeshift office behind a taxidermy shop and meeting his quirky team of local misfits, Josh suspects that winning his first big case will not be easy, especially when his client is always making himself look guilty.
