Plot Synopsis

Executive produced by host Dan Abrams, COURT CAM is a half-hour series that gives viewers a front row seat to some of the most wild, unruly and outrageous courtroom moments recently caught on tape. Each 30-minute episode includes interviews with judges, witnesses, and victims who give a first-hand account of what really happened during these intense courtroom moments. This comprehensive look at how the action unfolds allows viewers to sit in the courtroom as Abrams guides them through crazy courtroom moments -- from the most high-profile trials to minor court proceedings. "I have covered trials for my entire career, and even I was stunned by many of these remarkable courtroom moments... then getting to talk to the people involved from heroes to victims was as enlightening as it was humbling," said Abrams about the new program.

Season 2 of COURT CAM premiered on Thursday, July 16, 2020 from 10-11pm ET/PT, as A&E debuted back-to-back new episodes. In the season opener, a Russian man who has been convicted of murder attempts an escape from a high-security courtroom; and a judge goes off on a disrespectful defendant; thieves drive a truck into the lobby of a Texas courthouse. Then, in the night's second new episode, an emotional trial leads to a brawl outside a Massachusetts courthouse; a defendant assaults his own attorney; and the mother of a murder victim forgives her son's killer.
