Trial & Error

Show Summary

Told in "mockumentary" style, Trail & Error is an outrageous comedy that follows a bright-eyed New York lawyer, Josh, who gets his first case in a tiny southern town defending an eccentric "rollercizing" poetry professor accused of murdering his wife. Josh puts together a quirky legal, and mostly inept, team of local misfits. Josh's job won't be easy, especially when his client is always making himself look guilty. Trial & Error includes a number of references to The Staircase, the 2004 French true-crime docu-series about a crime novelist who is arrested for the murder of his wife.

Jeff Astrof and Matt Miller serve as writers and executive producers. Jeffrey Blitz directs and also serves as an executive producer. The series is produced by Barge Productions and Good Session Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television.

Starting with episode 1x03 on March 21, 2017, NBC began airing 2 episodes back to back from 9:00 pm - 10:00 pm on Tuesdays except for episode 1x11 which aired on a Thursday at 8:00 pm, the same week as episodes 1x09 and 1x10.
