Edward Berger to direct Bryan Cranston in Showtime’s Your Honor

Showtime has announced that Emmy nominated writer/director Edward Berger (Patrick Melrose) will return to the premium cable network to direct their new limited series Your Honor. Berger will direct the first three episodes of the series which sees Oscar nominee and Emmy, Golden Globe, Screen Actors Guild and Tony Award winner Bryan Cranston starring.

A legal thriller that rips through all strata of New Orleans society, Cranston will star as a respected judge whose son is involved in a hit-and-run that leads to a high-stakes game of lies, deceit and impossible choices. Your Honor is executive produced by Emmy nominees Robert and Michelle King (The Good Fight, The Good Wife, Evil). BAFTA winner Peter Moffat – whose Criminal Justice was the basis for The Night Of – serves as showrunner and executive producer and has written multiple episodes, including the first episode. Your Honor will go into production this fall in New Orleans.

Your Honor, 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 the country’s Yes TV. Liz Glotzer (Evil, The Good Fight, Castle Rock, The Shawshank Redemption), Alon Aranya and Rob Golenberg (Hostages, Betrayal) of Scripted World and James Degus of Moonshot Entertainment will also serve as executive producers.
