Chris Evans and Michelle Dockery on Defending Jacob

The Apple TV+ original series Defending Jacob is set around an almost unthinkable premise: what would you do if your child was accused of a horrific crime? For Massachusetts parents Andy Barber (Chris Evans) and Laurie Barber (Michelle Dockery), their son Jacob‘s (Jaeden Martell) potential involvement in the murder of a classmate upends everything, unearthing old family secrets and forcing them to question the premise of their entire lives.

On this special edition of the Little Gold Men podcast, created in collaboration with Apple TV+, hosts Joe Reid and LaTaya Ferguson discuss the eight episode of Defending Jacob, and how the dark subject matter unfolds into a gripping limited series and a showcase for the talents of it stars. Evans and Dockery also discuss their work on the show, from how they played two people who know each other so well but find themselves at odds to the lighter moments on set that were incredibly different from what you see onscreen.

Listen to the episode above. All eight episodes of Defending Jacob are streaming now.
