A bright-eyed New York lawyer heads to a tiny Southern town for his first big case, which is to defend an eccentric “rollercizing” poetry professor who is accused of the bizarre murder of his beloved wife. Settling into his makeshift office behind a taxidermy shop and meeting his quirky team of local misfits, the young lawyer suspects that winning his first big case will not be easy, especially when his client is always making himself look guilty. "Making a Murderer" can be funny!
NBC announced today that Trial & Error has been renewed for a second season. The comedy premiered this past March, where it garnered generally positive reviews and fared reasonably well ratings-wise as a mid-season performer.
Shot in a mockumentary style, the half-hour series follows an eager New York City lawyer sent to a small Southern town for his first big case. After settling into his makeshift office behind a taxidermy shop, it soon becomes apparent that winning his first big case will not be as easy as he thought, especially when his client has a way of making himself look guilty.
The network has ordered 10 new episodes for Season 2 of Trial & Error, down slightly from the 13 it aired in Season 1. With the main court case its first season all wrapped up, a brand new case will be forthcoming in its sophomore run, which will return in the midseason of 2017-2018.
