NEW YORK � April 6, 2005� Carey Lowell, who previously starred on "Law & Order" as ADA Jamie Ross from 1996 � 98, guest stars as the esteemed Judge Ross on NBC's "Law & Order: Trial By Jury," Friday, April 8th (10-11 p.m. ET/PT). Photos available at www.NBCUMV.com
In this week's episode, a bank worker (guest star Jeff Perry) casually shoots a customer to death and wounds others. This seemingly mentally unstable man runs rings around an exasperated A.D.A. Kibre (Bebe Neuwirth) in court when he asks to defend himself and exploits his claim of extreme emotional distress due to the tragic death of his son. But Kibre and Gaffney (Amy Carlson) must regain their footing before the jury through old-fashioned detective work which reveals critical holes in the murderer's persistent claim that he has been victimized by everyone. Fred Dalton Thompson, Kirk Acevedo and Scott Cohen ("NYPD Blue") also star.
"Law & Order: Trial By Jury" takes viewers through the legal process from arraignment to trial, told not only from the point-of-view of the prosecutors and police - but also from the perspective of defendants, defense attorneys, judges and jurors. From this omniscient perspective, viewers will be privy to ex-parte communications, intimate conversations between defendants and their attorneys, and a behind-the-scenes look at witness preparation and jury selection.
Lowell has been best known to audiences as ADA Jamie Ross on NBC's Emmy winning drama "Law & Order." She also has appeared in numerous films, including "Sleepless in Seattle," "Leaving Las Vegas," "Fierce Creatures" and starred in the James Bond film "License To Kill."
"Law & Order: Trial By Jury" is a Wolf Films production in association with NBC Universal Television Studio. Dick Wolf is creator and executive producer; Walon Green and Peter Jankowski are executive producers.
