Four new actors join cast of FOX anthology series Accused (US)

Keith Carradine, Emmy nominee Jason Ritter, Betsy Brandt, and Wrenn Schmidt have joined the cast of Fox’s upcoming anthology series Accused (US), based on the International Emmy-winning British series.

The project comes from 24 executive producers Howard Gordon and Alex Gansa and House creator/executive producer David Shore.

Developed by Gordon and co-produced by Fox Entertainment and Sony Pictures Television, Accused (US) is based on the BBC’s BAFTA-winning crime anthology. It opens in a courtroom on the accused, with viewers knowing nothing about their crime or how they ended up on trial. Told from the defendant’s point of view through flashbacks, Accused depicts how an ordinary person gets caught up in an extraordinary situation, ultimately revealing how one wrong turn leads to another, until it’s too late to turn back.

The series premieres Sunday, January 22, 2023. Accused (US) will then move to Tuesday evenings.
