- Starring: Scott Cohen, Bebe Neuwirth, Jerry Orbach
Law & Order: Trial by Jury, the latest series from Dick Wolf, architect of the most successful brand in primetime television with NBC’s Law & Order, takes viewers where they have never been before. For the first time, a Law & Order series is told not only from the point-of-view of the prosececutors and police -- but also from the perspective of the defense attorneys, defendants, judges and jurors.
Law & Order: Trial by Jury shows the inner workings of the judicial system, beginning with the arraignment, and continuing through the prosecutors’ complicated process of building a case, investigating leads and preparing witnesses for trial.
The series stars Bebe Neuwirth (“Cheers,” “Chicago”) as Assistant District Attorney, Tracey Kibre and Amy Carlson (NBC’s “Third Watch”) as Assistant District Attorney, Kelly Gaffney. Reprising his Law & Order role will be Fred Dalton Thompson as District Attorney Arthur Branch and the late Jerry Orbach as Lennie Briscoe, a retired police detective working as an Investigator for the District Attorney and Kirk Acevedo (“Band of Brothers”) also stars as Briscoe’s partner, DA Investigator Hector Salazar.
Trial by Jury was a midseason show that started on March 3rd and was cancelled after it's shortened 12-episode first season. The final episode of the series was played on August 3rd with hopes the show will be brought back on either NBC or TNT.

"The first thing we do, let's kill all the lawyers." I never came close to sharing that bloodthirsty sentiment from Shakespeare's Henry VI until I watched the early episodes of the fourth series to carry the Law & Order brand.
