Starring third rock from the sun cast John Lithgow, Nick D’Agosto, and Sherri Shepherd Trial & Error is about a young city lawyer who takes on his first big murder case in a wacky small town.
It’s not too often that you find a show that makes you laugh every time you catch a sneak peek of the previews. Well NBC’s new wildly funny series, Trial & Error, has that refreshing effect.
The new NBC comedy stars D’Agosto as Josh Segal, a defense attorney tasked with defending Larry Henderson, a poetry professor (John Lithgow) who’s arrested for murdering his wife. It’s a spoof of true crime shows that have swept the nation.
“It’s hilarious for starters,” Lithgow said. “It is a send up of something that is the opposite of hilarious, which is deadly serious, these crime documentary series that are so popular nowadays…It’s shot in exactly the same way.”
