Most parents would readily agree that they’d do anything to protect their child—but what happens when that child is accused of the unthinkable? Chris Evans and Michelle Dockery star in Apple’s limited series Defending Jacob, about the seemingly idyllic Barber family and the upheaval they experience when their son Jacob (Jaeden Martell) is charged with murder. Based on William Landay’s 2012 bestselling novel, Defending Jacob is a compelling character-driven thriller exploring guilt, deception, and how far a family will go to protect one of its own. Join Evans, Dockery and Martell, and the show's executive producers Mark Bomback and Morten Tyldum as they talk with Entertainment Weekly’s Devan Coggan about bringing their twisty thriller to the screen, from first accusations to that final, gut-wrenching ending.
All eight episodes of Defending Jacob are now available to stream exclusively on Apple TV+.
