The series is the ultimate David vs. Goliath battle fought in the 21st century American legal system. The series follows a down-and-out lawyer (Thornton) as he seeks redemption. His one shot depends on getting justice in a legal system where truth has become a commodity, and the scales of justice have never been more heavily weighed toward the rich and powerful.
The cast includes Oscar winners Billy Bob Thornton ("Fargo") and William Hurt ("Broadcast News"), along with Olivia Thirlby ("Juno"), Maria Bello ("Prisoners"), Molly Parker ("House of Cards") and multi-platinum recording artist Dwight Yoakam.
"Goliath" is produced by Amazon Studios and David E. Kelley Productions. The series is written by David E. Kelley ("Ally McBeal") and Jonathan Shapiro ("The Practice"); executive produced by Kelley, Shapiro and Ross Fineman ("Lights Out") and Larry Trilling ("Parenthood"); and directed by David Semel ("Madam Secretary").
