Amazon has announced premiere dates for two new drama series and the return date for a third. David E. Kelley’s new legal drama Goliath (formerly Trial), will premiere October 14, Good Girls Revolt on October 28, and December 16 for the Season 2 return of The Man in the High Castle, based on Philip K. Dick’s 1962 alternate history novel.
Goliath, from exec producer Kelley, stars Billy Bob Thornton, Dwight Yoakam, Harold Perrineau, Olivia Thirlby, Molly Parker and Maria Bello in the ultimate David vs. Goliath battle fought in the 21st century American legal system. The series follows a down-and-out lawyer (Thornton) as he seeks redemption. His one shot depends on getting justice in a legal system where truth has become a commodity, and the scales of justice have never been more heavily weighed toward the rich and powerful.
The series is written and executive produced by Kelley and Jonathan Shapiro. Ross Fineman and Larry Trilling also exec produce.
Written and executive produced by Dana Calvo, Good Girls Revolt is set in 1969 at the beginning of the women’s rights movement when a group of young women at the hottest magazine in the world ask to be treated fairly, setting off a convulsive chain of events. Lynda Obst, Jeff Okin, Darlene Hunt executive produce with Calvo and Don Kurt is a co-executive producer.
