(from ABC's press release, March 2016) What happens when a person's fate is placed in the hands of twelve strangers? Like 12 Angry Men meets the podcast Serial, The Jury follows a single murder trial over one season as seen through the eyes of the jurors. This season's case involves high school honor student Michael Cleary, on trial for the murder of 17-year old Victoria Cape. There is seemingly damning evidence of him on videotape, but of course, there is more to this case than meets the video camera's eye. The twelve jurors come from different economic backgrounds, races, and religions and see the world and the trial differently. As the evidence unfolds, the jurors' biases and past experiences influence how they perceive the evidence and ultimately determine the guilt or innocence of the accused. 70 year-old Judge Elmer Talbot explains the instructions with his heavy Texas accent to the twelve jurors: geeky IT guy Ernest Frost, bored as hell Melody Watson, hijab wearing Sobia Khan, working mom Angela Clayton, shrewd businessman Dan Guest, hipster artist Jared Wheaton, Hispanic marine Oscar Barrientos, the friendly Reverend Jim Pyken, perfect housewife Haley Winfield, blue-collar hardass Troy Woodruff, social crusader Monica Rai, and the quintessential maternal figure, Maggie Singer. Friendships, alliances, and feuds between the jurors will play a part in the deliberations throughout the complex trial in this series.
