TV viewers have been eating up mysteries for decades, and a new show puts a comedic twist on the crime series genre. Nicholas D'Agosto ("Final Destina- tion 5," 2011) returns as Josh Segal, a New York lawyer still adjusting to small-town life in East Peck, South Carolina, in the new season of "Trial & Error," subtitled "Lady, Killer," pre- miering Thursday, July 19, on NBC. The comedy once again spoofs documentaries and true crime shows as Segal tackles another high-profile case involving one of the town's most famous citizens. In season 2, eccentric socialite Lavinia Peck-Foster (Kristin Che- noweth, "Pushing Daisies") hires Segal to defend her when she's charged with murdering her husband. much and want to make him proud by continuing what he began." With Chenoweth leading the way, the new season shows a lot of promise, as the industry has been buzzing about the Tony winner's cast- ing since news broke in Fe bruary. The actress rose to prominence thanks to her work in musical theater, earning a Tony for her performance in the Broadway production of "You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown" in 1999. She also garnered praise for her role as Glinda in the smash Broadway hit "Wicked." Television audiences may recognize her as Annabeth Schott from NBC's "The West Wing" and Ol- ive Snook in ABC's "Pushing Daisies," the latter of which earned her a 1999 Emmy Award for Outstanding Sup- porting Actress in a Comedy Series. Her big-screen credits include "Be- witched" (2005) and "RV" (2006). She headlined her own sitcom, en- titled "Kristin," in 2001, but the show soon realizes that winning the case may not be a cakewalk. For one thing, her husband's body was found stuffed in a suitcase in the trunk of her car during a traffic stop. For another, she doesn't have a concrete alibi. As in season 1, Segal relies on his team of misfits as he builds his case. Fan favorite Sherri Shepherd ("The View") returns as Anne Flatch, who serves as Josh's assistant and head researcher. Steven Boyer ("The Wolf of Wall Street," 2013) portrays Dwayne Reed, a former East Peck cop who comes up with kooky theories about what may have happened. Amanda Payton ("NCIS") joins the cast of season 2 as podcaster Nina Rudolph, who moves from New York to East Peck to follow the trial, only to become involved in a love triangle.
