Your Honor on Showtime: Everything We Know

‘Your Honor’ is a legal thriller that is adapted from the Israeli TV show called ‘Kvodo.’ At its core, the story looks at how far a parent is willing to go to protect their child after he is involved in a hit and run that results in the death of a mobster’s son. The parent’s conundrum is one that may seem a bit cliched, but it still manages to shake things up as the story progresses.

While the script may not be the most original, there is this tension that is maintained all throughout the episodes. Furthermore, the story blurs the lines between good and bad, effectively playing with your definition of morality in the process. The drama really drives home the point that it only takes one moment for your entire life to be thrown into life-shattering chaos. So what can one expect from the first season? Here’s what we know.
