SEATTLE -- Dec. 2, 2015 -- (NASDAQ: AMZN) - Amazon today announced it has greenlit dramatic Amazon Original Series Trial to debut exclusively on Prime Video in the US, UK, Germany, Austria, and Japan next year. The new series stars Oscar winners Billy Bob Thornton (Fargo) and William Hurt (Broadcast News), along with Olivia Thirlby (Juno), Maria Bello (Prisoners) and Molly Parker (House of Cards).

Kelley (Ally McBeal) and Jonathan Shapiro (The Practice); executive produced by Kelley, Shapiro and Ross Fineman (Lights Out); and directed by David Semel (Madam Secretary).

"Billy Bob Thornton, William Hurt and David E. Kelley are world-class talents who have achieved longstanding success in captivating storytelling," said Roy Price, Vice President, Amazon Studios. "We are excited to bring this series to our customers next year."

Trial stars Thornton, Hurt, Thirlby and Bello in the ultimate David vs. Goliath battle fought in the 21st century American legal system. The series follows a down-and-out lawyer (Thornton) as he seeks redemption. His one shot depends on getting justice in a legal system where truth has become a commodity, and the scales of justice have never been more heavily weighed toward the rich and powerful.
