Written by VJ Boyd and Mark Bianculli and executive produced by Carol Mendelsohn, The Jury examines “the ultimate social experiment” that happens thousands of times a day in the U.S.: A person’s fate is placed in the hands of 12 strangers. The series follows a single murder trial a season as seen through the eyes of the individual jurors.
McLaren will play Jared, a juror with a dark past and penchant for speaking his mind. Esler will play Ernest, an awkwardly mild-mannered professional.
McLaren recurs on Chicago Fire and can next be seen in the upcoming drama anthology series Slasher on Chiller. He is repped by Don Buchwald & Associates, Berwick & Kovacik and Trisko Talent Management. Esler is best known for playing Sean McGinnes on AMC’s Hell On Wheels. He’s repped by Don Buchwald & Associates, Sophie Jermyn Management, Industry Entertainment and Bloom Hergott Diemer.
