Murder has never been funnier than in NBC’s Trial & Error. The series follows Nicholas D’Agosto as Josh, an eager New York defense lawyer who ventures to the small Southern of East Peck Hill for his first case. Could beloved and eccentric poetry professor, Larry Henderson (John Lithgow), who constantly incriminates himself by saying the wrong thing at the wrong time, possibly have murdered his wife? Hilarity ensues as Josh’s ragtag legal team of bumbling misfits piece together the clues and mount a defense. Tonight’s two-part finale will reveal who the killer is–and whether Josh has a future as a lawyer.
