Synopsis

Marty Rockman, the notorious producer of the hit reality-TV show "So Sue Me," has a brand new concept: "Citizen Verdict." Each week a real criminal case will be tried before the American people, but this time they're also the jury. If the defendant is voted guilty in a death penalty case, Rockman will televise the execution. When an escalation in violent crime and terrorism hits the state of Florida, Governor Tyler, desperate to be seen as a tough-on-crime Republican leader in the upcoming Presidential race, decides to give Rockman his chance and so "Citizen Verdict" goes into production in Tampa. Selected by phone-in vote, the show's first contestant is Ricky Carr--a man accused of the rape and murder of popular celebrity-chef Dolly Hamilton. The case is a surefire ratings-winner. But when an investigation begins, it becomes apparent that Ricky may be innocent of murder.
