Bryan Cranston of Breaking Bad fame will star in a new TV legal thriller set in New Orleans.
Showtime said Thursday that Cranston will play the lead role in Your Honor, a limited series from executive producers Robert and Michelle King of The Good Wife and The Good Fight and Peter Moffat.
Cranston, who’s also producing, plays a respected judge whose son is involved in a hit-and-run accident. It becomes the catalyst for what Showtime called “a high-stakes game of lies, deceit and impossible choices.”
Production on the 10-episode series will begin later this year in New Orleans, the cable channel said. A debut date for Your Honor was not announced.
Cranston, who starred in Breaking Bad, is appearing on Broadway in Network, an adaptation of the 1976 film.
