This week, Court TV has launched on Channel 89. Court TV is your front row seat to justice in the US, bringing you live, gavel-to-gavel coverage of America’s biggest and most important trials, all anchored by the most talented and trusted legal journalists.
In the upcoming months Court TV will be focussing on the trial of Derek Chauvin, the Minneapolis police officer accused of the murder of George Floyd. Alongside the coverage of the trial itself, Court TV will be airing a number of documentaries looking into the wider implications of the case, and the uneasy relationship between the US criminal justice system and the African American community.
