Following a 90-minute telecast of The Voice March 7, 2017, Trial & Error — co-starring five-time Emmy Award winner and two-time Tony winner John Lithgow — will make its debut at 9:30 PM ET and return the following week with back-to-back episodes beginning at 9 PM.

The cast also includes Josh Segal, Krysta Rodriguez (Spring Awakening, First Date), Jayma Mays, Sherri Shepherd, and Steven Boyer.

“In the spirit of true crime documentaries, this outrageous fish-out-of-water comedy features bright-eyed New York lawyer Josh Segal (Nicholas D’Agosto), who heads to a tiny Southern town for his first big case," according to NBC. “His mission? To defend an eccentric ’rollercizing’ poetry professor (John Lithgow) 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.”

Jeff Astrof, Matt Miller, and Jeffrey Blitz are executive producers of Trial & Error. Astrof and Miller wrote the pilot, which was directed by Blitz. The series is produced by Barge Productions and Good Session Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television.

Lithgow won Tony Awards for his performances in Sweet Smell of Success and The Changing Room.
