In today’s post, we’ll be talking about Trial And Error Season 3. The crime parody show Trial & Error who’s rights were with NBC has passed the deadline of renewal; this implies that the crime comedy has reverted its rights back to the producers at Warner Bros TV.
Long story short, Trial & Error is in TV limbo, and nobody knows its fate outside the corporate suits at the boardroom of NBC and Warner Bros TV.
Trial And Error Season 3 – Update
Trial & Error is a crime parody in which each season follows a different murder case. It’s a weird case because shows like these tend to have better ratings on the streaming services like Netflix and Hulu than they do in conventional television, but then again, streaming services have started to work like regular tv in the sense that they’re focusing on producing original series only.
The first season of Trial And Error got good reviews scoring 86% on Rotten Tomatoes; the second season scored a 91% in the same aggregator. But on NBC the linear ratings have slipped between seasons and the decision of the network to move the show from in season to a summer show have also contributed in the producing debacle we all see, but no one within Warner nor NBC dares to point at the elephant in the room.
This isn’t the first time it happens, because the series Timeless also had the same circumstances. NBC might still push for a late renewal of the series and might take some actions because the series regulars’ contracts have yet to expire.
Trial And Error Season 3 like previous seasons is set to be a crime parody mockumentary that follows the line of true crime and tells the story of a new york lawyer trying to handle big criminal law cases. The show was initially produced in Burbank but then moved to Vancouver to keep things more affordable in terms of production.
NBC’s pressure on the production team sends mixed messages. With the rejection of streaming services and NBC, producers want to keep the show alive. The main obstacle within NBC is having a time slot to schedule the show, the main obstacle with streaming services is budgetary issues and the likelihood of success due to the main behavior of TV audience vs. streamers.
So we’re just going to have to wait and see what happens with Trial & Error.
