LAW & ORDER:Trial By Jury



Order in the Court. Law & Order: Trial by Jury Premieres March 3 on CTV Premieres Thurs., Mar. 3 at 10pm ET, before moving to its regular day/timeslot Fridays at 10pm ET, beginning Mar. 4.

This latest offering from Dick Wolf portrays 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. For the first time, a Law & Order series unfolds not only from the point-of-view of the prosecutors and police -- but also from the perspective of the defense attorneys, defendants, judges and jurors. The ripped-from-the-headlines stories are entirely court-based.

Law & Order: Trial by Jury stars two-time Emmy and Tony Award-winner Bebe Neuwirth (Cheers, Chicago) as Assistant District Attorney Tracey Kibre, Amy Carlson (Third Watch) as Assistant District Attorney Kelly Gaffney, Fred Dalton Thompson (Law & Order) as District Attorney Arthur Branch, the late Jerry Orbach as Detective Lennie Briscoe, a retired police detective working as an Investigator for the District Attorney and Kirk Acevedo (Oz) as Briscoe's partner, DA Investigator Hector Salazar.

Dick Wolf is creator and executive producer; Walon Green and Peter Jankowski are executive producers; Arthur Forney and Richard Pearce are co-executive producers. Law & Order: Trial by Jury is a production of Wolf Films in association with NBC Universal Television Studio.
