Based on the Israeli series Kvodo, the miniseries leads to a high-stakes game of lies, deceit and impossible choices
A dark 10-episodic legal thriller, ‘Your Honor’ centers around the life of a New Orleans judge who is forced to confront his own deepest convictions when his son is involved in a hit-and-run that embroils an organized crime family. Based on the Israeli series 'Kvodo' created by Ron Ninio and Shlomo Mashiach Cranston, the miniseries leads to a high-stakes game of lies, deceit and impossible choices.
As a storm of vengeance, lies and deceit threatens to engulf the entire city, Michael Desiato faces a series of increasingly impossible choices and discovers just how far an honest man will go to save his son’s life. In the series premiere, dangerous crime lord Jimmy Baxter and his wife Gina Baxter’s birthday gift puts their son Rocco on a collision course with tragedy. Desiato will have to test the bonds with his oldest friend Charlie and put a strain on Adam’s secret relationship with girlfriend Frannie.
Led by Bryan Cranston, here are all the stellar actors in the series:
Bryan Cranston as Michael Desiato
Known for his stint in 'Breaking Bad', 'Seinfeld' and 'Malcolm in the Middle', Bryan Cranston is known as one of the best in TV history with four Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series in his kitty.
Born on March 7, 1956, in Hollywood, Los Angeles, California, he was the second of three children to radio actress Annalisa and actor and former amateur boxer Joseph Louis Cranston. Early this March, Cranston was diagnosed with coronavirus and recovered with mild symptoms. Reports say his sense of smell had only partially recovered by December 2020.
Hunter Doohan as Adam Desiato
A young actor, Hunter Doohan has starred in 'Truth Be Told' (2019) and 'Schooled' (2019). Shedding light on his character in 'Your Honor', Doohan told TVInsider, "It starts off on the anniversary of Adam's mom's death and he's trying to go do this really sweet thing and honor his mom because he doesn't feel like enough justice has been done for her and he doesn't have enough answers."
Talking about his experience on the show, he also added, "I love Bryan and I loved him way before this. And I'm always hoping people don't think I'm making this up because I was just the biggest 'Breaking Bad' fan, my brother and I have watched it through several times. But he's amazing. He's so much fun to work with, which is really helpful on a show where the material is so dark."
