Robert and Michelle King (The Good Wife) are on board to executive produce the new Showtime legal thriller Your Honor alongside Peter Moffat.
Moffat, whose Criminal Justice served as the basis for The Night Of, will also serve as writer on the new drama. The series, produced by CBS Television Studios in association with King Size Productions, is being adapted from the Israeli series Kvodo, created by Ron Ninio and Shlomo Mashiach, produced by Ram Landes and airing on Yes TV.
Your Honor follows the son of a respected judge who is involved in a hit and run. Soon after they are both drawn into a high-stakes game of lies, deceit and impossible choices when it comes to light that the victim was the son of a notorious crime boss.
“When a pitch has you on the edge of your seat for 40 straight minutes, you know you’re hearing something special,” said Gary Levine, the president of programming at Showtime Networks. “When the pitchers are as talented, experienced and acclaimed as Michelle King, Robert King and Peter Moffat, you buy it in the room and start planning for a fascinating new Showtime series.”
“Peter Moffat’s extraordinary talent with complex characters, suspenseful plotting and moral shading make him the perfect writer for Your Honor,” said Robert and Michelle King. “His pitch held the room hostage, and we can’t wait to watch him bring this mesmerizing, complicated story to life.”
