The Good Wife. The Night Of. Bryan Cranston. Those are the three of the award-winning powerhouses coming together to bring Showtime’s newest limited series Your Honor to life.
According to TVLine, the series would be executive produced by Robert and Michelle King who created both The Good Wife and its successful Christine Baranski spinoff, The Good Fight. It would be written by The Night Of’s Peter Mofatt, who would also serve as showrunner. Emmy Award-winner Bryan Cranston would star as a respected New Orleans judge whose son is involved in a hit-and-run, which leads to a high-stakes game of lies, deceit and impossible choices.”

The news comes a day after Showtime renewed Shameless for a tenth season, making it the longest-running series on the cable platform.
Production on Your Honor is expected to start later this year.
Having studied Media & Writing at James Madison University, I always knew that I wanted to do some type of creative writing, but being able to write about zombies, Starks, and superheroes on a daily basis for Fan Fest is my actual dream. While I probably shouldn’t be as proud as I am to be so similar to Nick Miller, I do hope to one day write my own “Pepperwood Chronicles’.
