Tagline: Watch, vote, and execute...all in the name of justice.

Plot: MARTY ROCKMAN (Jerry Springer), the notorious producer of the hit reality-tv show "So Sue Me", has a brand new concept: 'CITIZEN VERDICT'. Each week a real criminal case will be tried before the American people, but this time they're also the jury - and if the defendant is voted guilty in a death penalty case, Rockman will televise the execution.

An escalation in violent crime and terrorism has hit the state of Florida hard. GOVERNOR TYLER (Roy Scheider), desperate to be seen as a tough-on-crime Republican leader in the upcoming presidential race, decides to give Rockman his chance and "Citizen Verdict" goes into production in Tampa.

SAM PATTERSON (Armand Assante) is a well-respected liberal law professor trying to survive an expensive divorce when Rockman offers him a huge signing bonus to become the show's defense attorney. Convincing himself that the show has a valid purpose, Sam joins the team along with JESSICA LANDERS, the beautiful and brilliant prosecuting attorney, and CARLENE OSWAY, an ambitious law student who Sam hires as his assistant. Now all Rockman needs is the first case for the viewing public to judge...

Selected by phone-in vote, Sam's first client is RICKY CARR: accused of the rape and murder of popular celebrity-chef Dolly Hamilton, the case is a surefire
