Apple TV+ has released the trailer for its upcoming drama, Defending Jacob.
The series follows district attorney Andy Barber (Chris Evans) in his attempt to prove his teenage son’s (Jaeden Martell) innocence after he’s named the prime suspect in a murder investigation.
Although his parents believe him, others in the close-knit community become harder to convince as evidence like matching fingerprints and the potential murder weapon emerge. Therefore, Andy is pushed to his limit and must choose between his sworn duty to uphold justice and his unconditional love for his son.
“You could be a good man, or you could be a good father,” he’s told in the trailer.
Rounding out the cast for Defending Jacob is Michelle Dockery, Cherry Jones, Pablo Schreiber, Betty Gabriel, Paul Wesley, Leighton Meester and Kat Graham. It premieres with three episodes on April 24, followed by new episodes every Friday through May 29.
