Plot Synopsis

TRIAL AND ERROR is a half-hour, fish-out-of-water comedy series that parodies true-crime documentaries. Bright-eyed New York lawyer Josh Segal heads to a tiny Southern town for his first big case. His mission? To defend an eccentric rollercizing poetry professor, Larry Henderson, accused of the bizarre murder of his beloved wife, while taking on prosecutor Carol Anne in court. Settling into his makeshift office behind a taxidermy shop and meeting his quirky team of local misfits -- including researcher Anne and investigator Dwayne -- Josh suspects that winning his first big case will not be easy, especially when his client is always making himself look guilty. On Tuesday, March 14, 2017 from 10-11pm ET/PT, NBC premiered TRIAL & ERROR, debuting back-to-back episodes.
On Tuesday, April 18, 2017 from 10-11pm ET/PT, NBC premiered the season finale of TRIAL & ERROR, showing back-to-back new episodes. In the penultimate episode (10pm), "The Defense Rests," as Josh focuses on making his final case before closing arguments, he takes a huge gamble by putting Larry on the stand. Despite hiring the best witness coach in the South to train him, Larry's testimony leads to a shocking discovery about Larry's past that may be too difficult to overcome. Then, in the season ender (10:30pm), "The Verdict," the trial is over and the verdict is finally announced. A key piece of evidence is found that answers the question: Who killed Margaret Henderson?
