From renowned series creator David E. Kelly, GOLIATH is a dramatic series about a washed-up lawyer who finds himself trying a major case against the powerful law firm he helped create. Billy McBride (Billy Bob Thorton) was one of the most powerful trial lawyers in Southern California but now finds himself struggling with addiction and trying small-time cases. But when he's approached by attorney Patty Solis-Papagian (Nina Arianda) about the strange circumstances surrounding a fatal boating accident that killed her client's brother, he soon realizes the accident is somehow connected to a major defense contractor being represented by his former law firm. As he works with Patty and his former legal secretary-turned call girl Tania Raymond (Brittany Gold) to take the case to court, his former law partner Donald Cooperman (William Hurt) is pushing attorneys Callie Senate (Molly Parker) and second-year assistant attorney Lucy Kittridge (Olivia Thirlby) to stop him by any means possible, much to the dismay of the firm's general council, Leonard Letts (Damon Gupton), and partner Michelle McBride (Maria Bello), who also happens to be Billy's ex-wife. It’s a difficult, complicated, and risky situation, but McBride knows that he has the ability to beat this goliath -- and possibly redeem himself in the process.
