Fox’s new drama series Accused will premiere January 22 then debut in its regular timeslot Tuesday January 24. Each episode is a fast-paced provocative thriller, exploring a different crime, in a different city, with an entirely original cast. The series is based on the BBC series of the same name. Episodes open in a courtroom on the defendant, with viewers knowing nothing about their crime or how they ended up on trial. Told from the defendant’s point of view through flashbacks, the show holds a mirror up to current times with evocative and emotional stories. In the end, audiences will discover how an ordinary person gets caught up in extraordinary circumstances, and how one impulsive decision can impact the course of that life – and the lives of others — forever.
