NBC Renews John Lithgow’s Comedy ‘Trail & Error’ for Season 2

NBC has renewed freshman comedy “Trial & Error” for a 10-episode second season, Variety has learned.

Though the show, which stars John Lithgow, has not been a ratings hit, insiders say it has been a favorite of NBC boss Bob Greenblatt.

The comedy aired twice per week during its spring run, bringing in 3.9 million viewers overall — not as strong as NBC’s other comedies “The Good Place” or “Superstore,” both of which were renewed early.

In Variety‘s review of the series, critic Sonia Soraiya praised the series, comparing its elements to those of “Parks and Recreation,” “30 Rock,” and “The Office.” She wrote, “The show is a lighthearted, zany spoof of shows like ‘The Jinx’ and ‘Making a Murderer,’ those true-crime documentary series that take a viewer into the real-time investigation of a convoluted case.”

“Trial & Error” is a fish-out-of-water comedy that follows a bright-eyed New York lawyer (Nicholas D’Agosto) who heads to a tiny Southern town » See full article at Variety - TV News
