The US adaptation of the show that was produced by the Israeli cable network, YES, is being created by Peter Moffat (Criminal Justice) and The Good Wife's Robert and Michelle King. Other executive producers will be Rob Golenberg, Alon Aranya and Liz Glotzer. The series will be going into production in New Orleans in the fall. Ten episodes are planned.

Cranston stars as a judge who is drawn into a web of corruption and intrigue after his son is responsible for a hit-and-run car accident that kills the son of a gangster. Stuhlbarg will play Tommy, the ruthless boss of the crime family. Hunter Doohan will play the son and Sofia Black-D’Elia has been cast as his girlfriend.



The Israeli series won the Best Series Prize at the international Series Mania competition in France in 2017. It was created by Ron Ninio and Shlomo Mashiach and starred Yoram Hattab.

The second season of the Israeli series was released at the end of the July on YES VOD and STING TV and is showing on the YES Action channel on Mondays at 10 p.m.
