Reasonable Doubt Plot
The official press release by Hulu states, “You’ll judge Jax Stewart for her questionable ethics and wild interpretations of the law…until you’re the one in trouble. Then you’ll see her for what she is: the most brilliant and fearless defense attorney in Los Angeles who bucks the justice system at every chance she gets.”
Reasonable Doubt Cast and Crew
The main cast members of the series, along with their respective character descriptions, are as follows:
Michael Ealy will play Damon: Giving OG prison bae vibes, Damon isn’t someone you should look at too long unless you are trying to get into trouble. Complex, smart, and troubled, Damon is a former client of Jax’s who’s been in prison for sixteen years for a murder he didn’t commit.
TJ Mixson will portray Spenser: A full-on teenager, complete with lots of eye rolling and attitude, Spenser is the son of Jax and Lewis. Spenser makes it clear that he prefers to spend time with his dad (a video game designer) instead of his mom.
Aderinsola Olabode will play Naima, the daughter of Jax and Lewis: A sweet, loving Naima hasn’t hit the teenage years yet, unlike her 13-year-old brother, Spenser, and she’s still an obedient, loving child to both her parents.
Paulett Washington recurs as Mama Lu: Mama Lu keeps it real about everyone and everything (unless it’s about her own mistakes). Jax’s mother, Mama Lu, is opinionated and a little overbearing. She loves Jax, and she also loves Jax’s husband, Lewis. She makes it clear she thinks that Jax should work less and spend more time with her husband.
Sean Patrick Thomas is Brayden Mitchell: Rich, sexy, stylish, entitled, and savvy, but don’t let that fool you: underneath that is a brother from Southeast D.C. whose bite is actually worse than his bark. Brayden comes in as a client at Jax’s firm and immediately rubs her the wrong way.
Fox plays Theo James: Brayden Mitchell’s CFO, a warm and genuine individual who is dismayed at all the controversy surrounding his boss, but also a man whose loyalty would make him cross some questionable boundaries.
Perri Camper portrays Kaleesha Moore: Smart and confident, Kaleesha can fit into any room she steps into. Kaleesha is an Executive Vice President at Brayden Mitchell’s company.
Nefetari Spencer is Sally: A straight-talking, good-humored doctor. Sally is the “ride or die” friend among Jax’s group of close women friends.
Tiffany Yvonne Cox plays Autumn: The listener and caretaker of Jax’s friends. Autumn is happily married to her wife and has considered herself Jax’s best friend since tenth grade.
Shannon Kane portrays Shanelle: The quiet “judged” of Jax’s group of close friends. Shanelle and Jax have a complicated history that often puts them at odds.
Victor Rasuk plays Mike Llanas: An overzealous D.A., a man who lives and dies for his work. He and Jax went to law school together and have a history as rivals.
Christopher Cassarino will play Rich: An attorney at the same firm where Jax works, dealing mostly with contracts and litigation. He clashes with Jax during a huge case during the season.
Brooke Lyons portrays Sarah: The wife of multi-millionaire Braydon Mitchell. Sarah is well-educated and gave up everything to support her husband.
Eugene Byrd plays CJ: Damon’s brother, who feels betrayed when Damon questions him about conducting other business at the auto shop while Damon was in jail.
Raamla Mohamed leads the show’s all-Black writers’ room and executive produces alongside Kerry Washington and Pilar Savone for Simpson Street and Larry Wilmore via Wilmore Films.
