Amazon Studios has released a new trailer for Goliath, their upcoming series featuring Billy Bob Thornton, Maria Bello, and William Hurt. The new television series tells the story of a “disgraced lawyer, now an ambulance chaser gets a case that could bring him redemption or at least revenge on the firm which expelled him.” Watch the Goliath trailer now embedded after the jump.
Goliath looks like a great addition to the Amazon-produced television line-up, sure to compliment their other shows like Bosch. I’ll be checking it out next month when its released on Prime video.
Last month Amazon released a teaser for the new series, but this is our first full look at the new show. Although you wouldn’t know it from the trailer, this is the latest show from prolific producer David E. Kelley, who seems to be dipping his toes in the darker more intense premium drama category. The series has a great cast Billy Bob Thornton (Fargo season 1), Maria Bello (Prisoners), William Hurt (A History of Violence), Molly Parker (House of Cards), Tania Raymonde (Lost), Olivia Thirlby (Dredd), Harold Perrineau (Zero Dark Thirty), Nina Arianda (Win Win) and Dwight Yoakam.
The official synopsis follows:
Once a powerful lawyer, Billy McBride is now burned out and washed up, spending more time in a bar than a courtroom. When he reluctantly agrees to pursue a wrongful death lawsuit against the biggest client of Cooperman & McBride, the massive law firm he helped create, Billy and his ragtag team uncover a vast and deadly conspiracy, pitting them all in a life or death trial against the ultimate Goliath.
Goliath will be available to stream on Amazon Prime Video beginning on October 14th, 2016.Cool Posts From Around the Web:
