ITV’s new streaming service, ITVX, which was launched in late 2022, will be home to the gripping Australian courtroom drama, The Twelve, starring Sam Neill, known best for playing Dr Alan Grant in the Jurassic Park franchise.
The series will make its exclusive UK debut on the streaming service on February 16.
“This gripping courtroom drama tells the story of 12 ordinary Australians who are selected for jury duty in a murder trial as traumatising as it is controversial, in which a woman stands accused of killing her teenage niece,” ITV said.
“Behind the façade of their anonymity, these twelve ordinary people bring with them their own histories.”
It added: “Lives that are as complex as the trial, full of fractured dreams, shameful secrets, hope, fears, personal trauma, and prejudice.
“Through the multiple lenses of these jurors, audiences will see the fragility and imbalances of the law and the chaotic and flawed way we attempt to determine justice in our society.”
Alongside Golden Globe-nominated actor Sam Neill, the limited series also stars Marta Dusseldorp (Wentworth, Stateless, A Place to Call Home) and Kate Mulvany (Fighting Season, Lambs of God, Hunters).
The 10-episode crime drama commissioned by the FOXTEL Group is produced by Warner Bros.
