‘Trial and Error’ Episode Guide (April 4): The Trial Gets National Attention

“The Case Gets Bigger” (04/04/17; 9:00-9:30PM) – As Josh (Nicholas D’Agosto) prepares for trial, his boss, Mr. Mankiewicz comes down from New York to check up on him and reveals a gigantic hole in Josh’s case.

Meanwhile, Larry (John Lithgow), unsettled by his rift with his daughter and Josh’s boss being in town, takes matters into his own hands, with deadly consequences.

“A Change in Defense” (04/04/17; 9:30-10:00PM) – With the trial now getting national attention, Josh’s (Nicholas D’Agosto) boss, Mr. Mankiewicz has decided to take over the case, throwing the team into turmoil. Meanwhile, when Mankiewicz suggests Larry (John Lithgow) plead insanity, Josh and Carol Anne Keane (Jayma Mays) must work together to convince Larry to stand trial.

In the spirit of true-crime documentaries, this outrageous fish-out-of-water comedy “Trial & Error” centers on bright-eyed New York lawyer Josh Segal (Nicholas D’Agosto), who heads to a tiny Southern town for his first big case. His mission? To defend an eccentric “rollercizing” poetry professor (John Lithgow) accused of the bizarre murder of his beloved wife. Settling into his makeshift office behind a taxidermy shop and meeting his quirky team of local misfits, Josh suspects that winning his first big case will not be easy, especially when his client is always making himself look guilty.

The cast also includes Jayma Mays, Sherri Shepherd, Steven Boyer and Krysta Rodriguez.

Jeff Astrof and Matt Miller serve as writers and executive producers. Jeffrey Blitz directs and also serves as an executive producer. “Trial & Error” is produced by Barge Productions and Good Session Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television.
