Watch Now

On Apple TV+: I really enjoyed the book Defending Jacob by William Landay (review) and was thrilled to hear it was being adapted and would star Chris Evans and Michelle Dockery (Love her in Good Behavior)! The book is a legal thriller about a father whose teenage son is suspected in another teen’s murder, and when I read it I thought it would be perfect for a series adaptation–it works so well for fans of legal thrillers, and procedurals, and family drama. And it’ll premiere today, April 24th! Here’s the trailer!
