‘The Staircase’ Documentary Is in the DNA of NBC’s New Comedy Whodunnit ’Trial & Error’

14 March 2017 7:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Before “Making the Murderer,” “The Jinx,” and even “Serial,” the documentary “The Staircase” illustrated a story of death and desire that was riveting for all of its unexpected turns.

The Staircase” took the true crime world by storm, and fans of the series were divided over whether or not mystery novelist Michael Peterson had killed his wife – or if she had died from falling down the stairs, as he claimed. The series was so popular that it inspired NBC’s new comedy “Trial & Error,” a true-crime mockumentary that stars John Lithgow as the accused in a murder case.

TV Review: ‘Trial & Error’ on NBC, Starring John Lithgow

8 March 2017 8:30 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

“Trial & Error” should not be as funny as it is. The sitcom is kind of a tea-cozy murder mystery with a bemused affection for its rural setting that is reminiscent of NBC’s departed “Parks and Recreation,” full of punchy one-liners like “30 Rock,” and in a mockumentary format like “The Office.” The new NBC comedy seems to have been carefully constructed from elements of great Must-See-TVs of yore, and that’s a process that doesn’t always yield great programming. Even the idiosyncratic ensemble that gathers around the case also feels like an homage to “Parks and Recreation” — there’s the too-cool young brunette, the “citified” lawyer from “elsewhere,” a black woman with the funniest lines on the whole show, and a dedicated public servant determined to make her mark. And to top it all off, “Trial & Error” is headlined by John Lithgow, who won three Emmys as the lead of NBC’s long-running “3rd Rock from »

The series follows New York lawyer Josh Segal (Nicolas D’Agosto), who takes to a small Southern town for his first case. He and his eccentric team defend a “rollercizing” professor Larry Henderson (John Lithgow) who’s been accused of murdering his wife.

The first episode sees Lithgow playing a vastly different role than his serious portrayal of Winston Churchill in The Crown. From becoming pals with his »

The Short List of Famous People Who Think the Earth Is Flat (Yes, Really)

20 February 2017 11:42 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

NBA star Kyrie Irving made headlines last week when he revealed that he believes that the world was flat, and surprisingly he’s not the only famous person who doesn’t believe the globe is … well, a globe.

Over NBA All-Star weekend, Irving’s comments became a hot topic of conversation, and even resulted in some gentle ribbing from fellow Cleveland Cavaliers player LeBron James. While Irving later said he found the reaction to his flat-Earth theory “hilarious,” he also said that his opinion on the shape of the world we live in shouldn’t really matter to other people. »
