LIFETIME TELEVISION PREMIERES ONE ANGRY JUROR, STARRING JESSICA CAPSHAW,
ON NOVEMBER 15
LOS ANGELES, CA (October 13, 2010) - Popular television and film
actress Jessica Capshaw (Grey's Anatomy, The Practice) stars as a woman
out for justice on behalf of a man accused of murder in the Lifetime
Original Movie, One Angry Juror. The film will premiere Monday, November
15, at 9pm ET/PT on Lifetime Television.
Based on a true story, One Angry Juror follows the story of Sarah Walsh
(Capshaw), a tough, opinionated, no-nonsense New Orleans attorney who has
been chosen to serve on the jury of a murder trial. Reluctantly serving
her duty, she is apathetic towards the defendant until she is convinced
that he may actually be innocent. Unwavering, Sarah deadlocks the jury to
secure a mistrial. When they retry the case, she partners with the defense
attorney Donald Burston (Jeremy Ratchford, Cold Case) and detective
Derrick White (Michael Jai White, Why Did I Get Married Too?) and the
investigation leads them through a dangerous maze of corruption. With the
support of her husband (Jonathan Scarfe, ER), Sarah begins to reconcile
her own past and realize that she is one man's last chance for freedom.
