David Tennant (Broadchurch, Doctor Who) stars as a brilliant defense lawyer with a storybook family and a potent nickname, The Escape Artist, for his ability to spring the obviously guilty. But then he gets a trial that changes his life forever.
Written by David Wolstencroft (Spooks), this gripping legal thriller costars Sophie Okonedo (Hotel Rwanda) as the hero’s rival, along with a courtroom full of ambitious attorneys and one very unnerving defendant.
