Created by Ben Watkins, and marking the television debut of filmmaker Marc Forster, the highly-anticipated Amazon Studios original dramatic series “Hand of God” stars Ron Perlman as the honorable justice Pernell Harris. The show centers on Judge Harris, a hard-living, law-bending married man with a high-end call girl on the side, who suffers a mental breakdown and goes on a vigilante quest to find the rapist who tore his family apart. With no real evidence to go on, Pernell begins to rely on “visions” and “messages” he believes are being sent by God through Pernell’s ventilator-bound son.
“Hand of God” also stars Dana Delany as the Judge’s protective wife Crystal Harris, Garret Dillahunt as KD, the born-again sociopath whose violent tendencies are exploited by Pernell, Andre Royo as the slick, smart, gregarious, and greedy mayor Robert ‘Bobo’ Boston, Alona Tal as Pernell’s grieving daughter-in-law Jocelyn Harris, Julian Morris as the questionable preacher Paul Curtis, Elizabeth McLaughlin as the preacher’s sultry girlfriend Alicia, and Emayatzy Corinealdi as Pernell’s call girl and confidante Tessie.
Erykah Badu, Lance Bass, Hunter Parrish, Jon Tenney and Jacob Vargas will all guest star in “Hand of God,” which premieres on September 4 for Amazon Prime subscribers.
Watkins, Forster, Perlman, Brian Wilkins and Jeff King are Executive Producers, and Jillian Kugler is co-Executive Producer. The pilot episode of “Hand of God” is available to watch anytime at www.amazon.com/primeinstantvideo.
