Bryan Cranston is making his TV return.

The Breaking Bad star will lead the Showtime limited 10-episode series Your Honor, which hails from The Good Wife creators Michelle and Robert King. Peter Moffat (The Night Of) will serve as writer and showrunner.

Set in New Orleans, the legal thriller features Cranston as a respected judge who son is involved in a hit-and-run, leading to “a high-stakes game of lies, deceit and impossible choices.”

“Peter, Michelle and Robert have crafted an original thriller with gut-wrenching suspense, raw emotion and moral complexity,” Gary Levine, Showtime’s President of Entertainment, said in a statement. “And we are simply ecstatic that Bryan Cranston, one of the planet’s finest actors, shares our enthusiasm and has agreed to play the lead.”

Cranston’s return to TV comes as a Breaking Bad movie is in on the way, which is expected to focus on Aaron Paul’s Jesse.
