Renewed for Season 2!

Based on the BBC’s BAFTA-winning crime anthology, ACCUSED is a collection of 15 intense, topical  and  exquisitely  human  stories  of  crime  and  punishment.  Each episode is a fast-paced, provocative thriller, exploring a different crime, in a different city, with an entirely original cast.

Every show opens on a defendant in a courtroom, with viewers knowing nothing about their crime or how they ended up on trial. Told from the accused’s point of view through flashbacks, the show holds a mirror up to current times with evocative and emotional stories. In the end, audiences will discover how an ordinary person gets  caught  up  in  extraordinary  circumstances,  and  how one impulsive decision can impact the course of that life – and the lives of others – forever.

Developed by Howard Gordon (“Homeland,” “24”) and executive-produced by Gordon, Alex Gansa (“Homeland,” “24”) and David Shore (“House,” “The Good Doctor”), ACCUSED features cinematic auspices and production values is anchored by Oscar and Emmy-winning talent.

Emmy Award winner Margo Martindale (The Americans) and Emmy Award nominee Molly Parker (House of Cards) will star in a gripping episode tackling conspiracy theories. Rachel Bilson (The O.C.) and Jack Davenport (The Morning Show) star in a thrilling episode with a family caught in a troubling situation. Reid Miller and August Maturo also  star in the episode alongside  Bilson  and  Davenport. Acclaimed Broadway star, J. Harrison Ghee (Kinky Boots) will appear in the Billy Porter-directed episode about a drag queen’s affair and its aftermath.

These stars, and others, join the ranks of previously announced cast, including  Emmy  Award  winner Michael Chiklis, Jill Hennessy, Oakes Fegley, Robert Wisdom, Whitney Cummings, Academy Award nominee Abigail Breslin, Aisha Dee, Emmy Award nominee Malcolm Jamal Warner, Karen LeBlanc, Wendell Pierce, Jean-Michel Le Gal, Stephanie Nogueras, Joshua  Castille,  Megan  Boone,  Lauren  Ridloff,  Mary  Lynn  Rajskub,  Baron  Vaughn,  Sean  Kleier, Rhea Pearlman, Aaron Ashmore and Tony Award nominee Daphne Rubin-Vega.
