Billy Bob Thornton Battles 'Goliath' in First Trailer for Amazon Drama
Goliath, meet your new David -- a boozy, down-and-out dumpster fire of a lawyer named Billy McBride.
Entertainment Weekly debuted the first trailer for "Goliath," Amazon's new legal drama from David E. Kelley ("Boston Legal," "Ally McBeal"). Billy Bob Thornton stars as the aforementioned Billy, who's on an alcohol-fueled downward spiral that drove away his wife (Maria Bello) and child. Now, he's seeking redemption in a wrongful death suit against a big corporation. The case pits him against his powerhouse old firm, led by former partner William Hurt.
The show marks Kelley's return to television after three years (his last project was the short-lived "The Crazy Ones," starring Robin Williams and Sarah Michelle Gellar). Thornton, meanwhile, is coming off an Emmy-nominated turn on FX's "Fargo."
The trailer is intense and compelling, and the series promises to be darker and twist-ier than Kelley's previous fare. And the show boasts an outstanding cast, including Molly Parker, Sarah Wynter, and Jason Ritter.
"Goliath" begins streaming Oct. 14 on Amazon.
