Martin Freeman and Anthony LaPaglia star as producers wanting to televise the trial of former Nazi Adolf Eichmann in this made-for-TV drama. Following Eichmann's capture by Mossad agents in 1960, American TV producer Milton Fruchtman (Freeman) works with blacklisted producer-director Leo Hurwitz (Lapaglia) to get the trial televised around the world. In their honourable quest the pair face strong resistance from reluctant networks, the public and even from the Israeli prime minister. But their assembled team persevere to create 'The Eichmann Show', winning Emmy and Peabody awards for their trial summary programme 'Verdict For Tomorrow'.
