From the Emmy Award winning producers of Homeland, 24 and House comes Accused launching next week on Seven.
A fast-paced, provocative thriller based on the BBC’s BAFTA-winning crime anthology, Accused chronicles ordinary people caught in extraordinary situations.
As each episode opens in a courtroom, a new defendant tells the story of how they found themselves on trial. Through flashbacks, the show holds a mirror to current times with evocative and emotional human stories of crime and punishment, highlighting how one impulsive decision can impact the course of life and the lives of others. Forever.
Across 15 episodes, Accused explores a different crime, in a different city, with an entirely original star-studded cast, including: Rachel Bilson (The O.C., Hart of Dixie), Abigail Breslin (My Sister’s Keeper, Little Miss Sunshine), Emmy Award winner Michael Chiklis (Fantastic Four, The Shield), Whitney Cummings (2 Broke Girls, Punk’d), Jack Davenport (Smash, Pirates of the Caribbean), Emmy Winner Margo Martindale (Cocaine Bear, The Millers), Molly Parker (Deadwood, Wormwood), Emmy Award winner Rhea Perlman (Cheers, Matilda), Wendell Pierce (Suits, The Wire), Malcolm-Jamal Warner (The Cosby Show, Malcolm & Eddie) and more.
Academy Award winner Marlee Matlin, Emmy Winner Billy Porter, renowned Indigenous Filmmaker Tazbah Rose Chavez and Michael Chiklis all direct episodes.
