Verdict is a revolutionary online courtroom drama in which YOU become the jury – voting guilty or not guilty to influence the outcome of every episode.
What if the justice system was controlled by the court of public opinion, and a suspect's guilt or innocence was determined by popular vote?
In this fascinating alternate world, a population fed up with out-of-control crime revolts and demands change, and so the country's justice system is radically transformed: cases are now literally tried in the court of public opinion. The highest-profile cases are aired live on VERDICT, a 24-hour station run by the people, for the people. Citizens watch with fervor, listen to witnesses and examine the evidence … and then, they vote: guilty or not guilty. Through cell phones, computers, iPads and PEDs, justice now rests in the hands of the general public.
