Check out a short roundup of what was said during the panel.
Dockery on imagining being parent to a 16 year old: It was easy for us to become a family on set. We all had a lovely time together despite intensity of subject matter. We all bonded quickly. #DefendingJacob#TCA20
Michelle Dockery says it always starts with the writing for her – she likes this genre. She liked that it becomes so much more about the characters than the whodunit. She liked examining how she'd react as a parent to this situation #DefendingJacob#TCA20
Dockery liked that Laurie Barber was different from any character she's ever played. She likes playing an American and doing accent. Chris Evans loved doing #KnivesOut and #DefendingJacob back to back and being home in Boston. #TCA20
Apple TV+’s new Chris Evans-led thriller Defending Jacob will debut this spring with a three-episode premiere, the company announced Sunday. The streaming service will drop the series’ first offerings on Friday, April 24, and new episodes will follow weekly thereafter.
Based on the best-selling novel of the same name by William Landay, the character-driven thriller will be a limited-series that unfolds around a shocking crime in a small Massachusetts town. It follows an assistant district attorney (Evans) who “finds himself torn between his sworn duty to uphold justice and his unconditional love for his son,” according to the streamer’s official description.
