Showtime Picks Up Drama 'Your Honor' from Peter Moffat and Robert & Michelle King

Showtime has given a straight-to-series order to original drama series Your Honor created by Peter Moffat (Criminal Justice) and executive produced by The Good Wife creators Robert and Michelle King.

The series is described as a legal thriller that rips through Chicago society. It follows the son of a respected judge who is involved in a hit and run, with both of them dragged into a high-stakes game of lies, deceit and impossible choices when it's revealed that the victim was the son of a crime boss.

The Kings and Moffat executive produce with Liz Glotzer, Alon Aranya and Rob Golenberg. CBS Television Studios, King Size Productions and Scripted World produce.

"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."

"When a pitch has you on the edge of your seat for 40 straight minutes, you know you're hearing something special," added Gary Levine, President of Programming, Showtime. "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."
