Are you watching Jury Duty? If not, then you should be! The new series is a documentary-style comedy that has gained plenty of attention online and is swiftly becoming a huge hit. The show focuses on Ronald Gladden, an average Joe who signs up to take part in what he thinks is a documentary about how jury service works. 

However, unbeknown to Ronald, everyone around him is an actor, meaning he finds himself surrounded by some interesting characters who are all in on the joke filming a comedy show about a trial that is definitely not real.

There's also a very familiar face in the jury – James Marsden. The Hairspray actor plays a fictionalised version of himself and does a brilliant job of convincing Ronald he's a slightly obnoxious, self-involved actor type. So where can those who are yet to tune in watch this brilliant show?
