The truth belongs to those who twist it.
Onyx Collective debuts the trailer and key art for their upcoming sexy, legal drama series Reasonable Doubt, premiering to Hulu this Fall. The series executive produced by Kerry Washington and Larry Wilmore features breakout talent Emayatzy Corinealdi, along with Michael Ealy, McKinley Freeman and Aderinsola Olabode.
The Hulu Original series follows Corinealdi’s character Jacqueline “Jax” Stewart, who is a high—powered criminal defense attorney from Los Angeles. She fiercely bucks the justice system with her questionable ethics and even wilder interpretations of the law. Despite her immoral approach, you still want to root for her.
In the short trailer, we see Jax going through the motions through her marriage and her career. Viewers can already sense the drama that will soon be revealed. From Jax’s visit to Ealy’s character in prison to having an affair with him shortly after, who knows what might go down in this riveting series.
Reasonable Doubt is loosely based on celebrity attorney Shawn Holley, who has advised an impressive roster of clients including the Kardashian and Jenner families, Lindsay Lohan, Justin Bieber, Tupac Shakur and Katt Williams.
Corineldi, Ealy, Freeman and Olabode are also joined by Tim Jo, Angela Grovey, Sean Patrick Thomas, and Pauletta Washington. Creator and showrunner Raamla Mohamed (Little Fires Everywhere, Scandal) teamed up with her longtime friend Washington for yet another legal drama series. Mohamed led an all-Black writers room and each episode is directed by Black directors.
