Jury Duty is the new documentary style comedy show developed by Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky with James Marsden in the main role of the trial’s presiding judge.
The legal comedy drama series is a fresh take on America’s legal system that tells us the whole story of the US courts while keeping the comedic tone intact.
Another interesting part is that, the show uses real jurors who have attended numerous proceedings and that’s why the fictional trial looks so realistic.
What is Jury Duty about?
Directed by Jake Szymasnski, the series is about a fake civil trial where everything is scripted but the main juror Ronald Gladden isn’t aware of the falsehood.
Everything except him is a comedic actor who is just playing his part in the series. The trailer shows Marsden as the most prominent character who is discussing the cast with his jury.
The show is produced by Tanner Bean and Katrina Mathewson under Funny or Die, the comedy production company co-founded by Will Ferrell and Adam McKay.
