Guilty, not guilty, or just a little bit guilty? Fox is reviving the Emmy-winning UK series Accused, whose anthology format that will see America’s top acting talent playing desperate individuals caught up in life-changing circumstances. Each week tells a uniquely compelling story of crime and punishment, and you can catch every episode with our guide below on how to watch Accused online from anywhere now.
Accused focuses on a different defendant in the dock each episode, and teasingly revealing in flashback how they came to be in front of the judge and jury. It really is a tantalizing premise.
First created by Jimmy McGovern in 2010, the UK version featured British luminaries of stage and screen such as Sean Bean, Naomie Harris, and the excellent Olivia Coleman.
This US version is just as starry. Not only has it been developed by the Emmy-award winning producers of Homeland, but it has some major talent behind and in front of the camera. Pose star Billy Porter and multi-award winner Marlee Matlin (CODA) direct episodes alongside Michael Chiklis, while Wendell Pierce (The Wire) and Betsy Brandt (Breaking Bad) join Margo Martindale and Abigail Breslin as individuals facing hefty jail time.
