Fox on Friday released the first on-air promo for its upcoming drama, Accused, from a dream-team trio of executive producers in Howard Gordon (Homeland, 24), Alex Gansa (Homeland, 24) and David Shore (House, The Good Doctor). The spot, which was produced in partnership with Northern Lights Agency, first aired in game one of the World Series between the Houston Astros and Philadelphia Phillies on Fox on Friday night.
Each of the series’ 15 episodes tells a different crime story in a different city with a different cast, with Rachel Bilson, Abigail Breslin, Michael Chiklis, Whitney Cummings, Jack Davenport, Margo Martindale, Molly Parker, Rhea Perlman, Wendell Pierce and Malcolm-Jamal Warner all appearing in different episodes. Accused is based on the BBC’s BAFTA-winning crime anthology, in which each episode opens in a courtroom on the defendant, whose story is told from his or her point of view. Directing are Marlee Matlin, Billy Porter, indigenous filmmaker Tazbah Rose Chavez and Chiklis, among others.
Accused premieres Sunday, January 22 on Fox.
